Abstract: 
We embed a competitive search model with labor market discrimination into a two-sector, two-country framework in order to analyze how labor market discrimination and international trade interact. Discrimination reduces the matching probability and output in the differentiated-product sector so that the country with more discriminatory firms has a comparative advantage in the simple sector. Trade liberalization reinforces the negative effect of discrimination in the more discriminatory country.
