Duvander, Ann-Zofie E.
Work and Occupations: An International Sociological Journal, v28 n2 p210-33 May 2001
Comparison of 1,800 Swedish citizens and 1,600 immigrants to Sweden suggested that Swedish language skills and education do not reduce immigrants' risk of unemployment. Country-specific skills reduced risk of overqualification, but did not account for the labor market disadvantage of immigrants, which may be due to discrimination. (Contains 56 references.) (SK)
