Differences in Wage Distributions between Natives, Non-Refugees, and Refugees
AbstractThis study examines differences in wage distributions between natives, non-refugees, and refugees in Sweden. We find that the wage differentials between natives and non-refugee immigrants decrease across the distribution, while those between natives and refugee immigrants increase. There is evidence of a glass ceiling effect for refugee males in Sweden, and we also find evidence of a glass ceiling effect for native-born women and non-refugee women in the Swedish labor market in comparison with native-born and non-refugee men, respectively. In addition, there is evidence of a double disadvantage effect for refugee women in the Swedish labor market.
