dc.description.abstractUsing a large new dataset, we analyze the labor market performance of Portugueseworkers in Germany. While previous work compares wages and characteristics ofmigrants only to those of the natives, we match the data also with an equivalent surveyfrom the sending country. We find that Portuguese migrants as a whole are negativelyselected with the exception of blue-collar workers that are the greatest group amongthem. The observation that Portuguese migrants earn more than comparable Germansindicates that they have higher unobservable skills. Our results confirm theeffectiveness of the German guestworker systemen_US
