Immigration and Labor Economists talked about the impact of immigration on wages in the U.S., focusing on the pay of low-skilled workers. The researchers presented data showing that contrary to some political rhetoric, immigration to the U.S. tended to exert upward pressure on wages for native-born Americans, particularly those in lower skilled jobs. Following the panel discussion, the panelists responded to question from the audience. The program began with introductory remarks from Alex Nowrasteh.

“Labor and Wages” was the first panel of the day-long “Immigration Economics” event. close
