The Value of Bilingualism in the U.S. Labor Market.
Fry, Richard; Lowell, B. Lindsay
Industrial and Labor Relations Review, v57 n1 p128-40 Oct 2003
National Adult Literacy Survey data were used to estimate wage returns on second-language skills for 5,742 English monolinguals, 436 bilinguals who understand another language very well, and 124 who understand another language well. Nominal wages of bilinguals were higher but this reflected higher educational attainment. Regression analyses did not reveal higher returns for bilingualism. (Contains 19 references.) (SK)
