Gender, Earnings, and the English Skill Acquisition of Hispanic Workers in the United States
Using the 1980 and 1990 Public Use Microdata Samples, the authors find that labor market outcomes associated with English proficiency vary with respect to gender. For example, a synthetic cohort analysis provides evidence of gender-related differences in Hispanic workers' English skill acquisition. Moreover, the authors observe that Hispanic women face a lower English deficiency earnings penalty that rises more sharply with education than the penalty obtained by their otherwise similar male peers. Finally, English fluency appears to serve as a stronger occupational sorting mechanism for women than men. Copyright 1998 by Oxford University Press.
