Abstract

This paper is on the early labor market experiences of second-generation immigrants in the Netherlands. We find that only for employment rates there are some differences across ethnic groups. Conditional on having a job there is hardly any difference in wages and other job characteristics between second-generation immigrants and native Dutch of the same age group.

Keywords: Second-generation Immigrants, Ethnic Minorities, Labor Market
