El presente trabajo pretende aportar evidencia empírica acerca de los salarios de los inmigrantes en España y su posible discriminación en comparación con los de los nuevos trabajadores nativos. Para ello, se utilizan datos procedentes de la Muestra Continua de Vidas Laborales (MCVL, Ministerio de Trabajo y Asuntos Sociales, 2006) que al tener un amplio tamaño muestral permite analizar detalladamente distintos grupos de colectivo inmigrante, por ejemplo, según su región de procedencia y la región (comunidad autónoma) en la que desarrollan su actividad. Metodolódicamente, se estiman ecuaciones de ganancias para españoles y extranjeros mediante modelos Tobit. Posteriormente, se utiliza la metodología propuesta por Jenkins para el análisis distribucional de las diferencias discriminatorias en salarios.
