Native-Immigrant Wage Differentials in the Netherlands: Discrimination?
This article examines the presence of discrimination in wage offers for Antillean, Surinam, Turkish, and Moroccan immigrants in the Netherlands. The empirical findings indicate that discrimination is present against Antilleans and Turks but not against Surinamese and Moroccans. The Antillean treatment disadvantage accounts for 34 percent and the Turkish for 14 percent of the wage gap with natives. Of the differences in observed characteristics, that in experience is most important for Antilleans and Surinamese and that in education for Turks and Moroccans. For all immigrants, the major separate contribution comes from the relatively low number of school years acquired in the Netherlands. Copyright 1995 by Royal Economic Society.
