Title:Can immigrant employment alleviate the demographic burden? : The role of union centralization PDF Logo
Authors:Kemnitz, Alexander
Issue Date:2005
Series/Report no.:CESifo working papers 1525
Abstract:This paper investigates the effect of labor immigration on public pensions when wage setting by a centralized trade union leads to unemployment. It is shown that immigration improves the financial soundness of pay-as-you-go pensions if and only if it diminishes total employment. This occurs if the absolute value of the elasticity of labor demand exceeds the unemployment rate.
