Abstract

Spatial mobility can be seen as an employment strategy to obtain job opportunities located into a different local labor market than the individual origin’s local market. That is migrants should have higher wages than non-migrants, as much more than migration effort should be compensated by job advantages following migration, according to the costs/benefits trade-off mechanism. Nevertheless some unobservable characteristics could generate higher or lower earnings as well as higher or lower migration probabilities. By considering migration’s distance of young workers, between the local labor markets at the end of their studies and three years later, we evaluate the real migration return of spatial mobility which reveal their migration costs/benefits trade-off.
