Immigration and the Earnings of Young Native Workers
This paper studies the impact of increased immigration in Austria on the wages of young native blue collar workers. The authors find that in regions, industries, or firms with a larger foreign share, Austrian earn higher wages. With respect to the impact of changes in the immigrant share on wage growth, the results are mixed. The authors develop a simple bargaining model which is consistent with these surprising results.
