摘要:
Research has shown a limited labor mobility response to trade shocks. Existing studies of aggregate mobility may miss important heterogeneity. This paper proposes a mechanism through which local labor markets adjust to trade shocks, namely immigrant mobility. I find a relative decline in the immigrant population in areas more  exposed to import growth from China. An interquartile increase in Chinese import  exposure decreases the immigrant population by 5.4 percent but has little effect on the native population. Additionally, immigrant mobility mitigates the effects of trade shocks on native labor outcomes. The present study shows that natives in areas with more immigrants experience smaller declines in employment relative to areas with few immigrants.
