Selective Immigration Policies and Wages Inequality

Anthony Edo () and Farid Toubal

Review of International Economics, 2015, vol. 23, issue 1, 160-187

Abstract: We quantify the overall impact of immigration on native wages in France from 1990 to 2010. Our short-run simulations indicate that immigration has decreased native wages by 0.6%. We find on average no impact of immigration on wages in the long run. However, we show that the long-run effects of immigration on wages are detrimental to high-skilled native workers and benefits to low-skilled native workers. Our structural estimation allows us to evaluate the impact of “selective” migration policies. In particular, we find that selective immigration policies toward highly educated workers reduce the wage dispersion of French native workers.
