dc.description.abstractIn this paper, we analyze immigrant wage gaps and propose an extension of the traditional wagedecomposition technique, which is a synthesis from two strains of literature on ethnic/immigrantwage differences, namely the ?assimilation literature? and the ?discrimination literature?. Weestimate separate wage equations for natives and a number of immigrant groups using paneldata sample selection models. Based on the estimations, we find that the immigrant wage gap iscaused by a lack of qualifications and incomplete assimilation, and that a large fraction of thatgap would disappear if only immigrants could find employment and thus accumulate workexperience.en_US
