Immigrant Earnings in the Italian Labour Market
The aim of this paper is to assess the relation between individual skills and labour market performance by immigrants residing in Lombardy. We exploit a rich dataset collected by the NGO ISMU, which includes information on individual characteristics and the legal status of each immigrant. Our results show that returns on schooling are positive, although much lower than the one estimated for native Italians. This result is robust to a number of specifications and tests; in particular, it is not influenced by a possible self-selection in the labour supply or by signalling problems to local employers.
