Abstract

Current projections, as indicated by the 2000 Census, suggest that racial and ethnic minorities will outnumber non-Hispanic whites in America by the year 2050. Clearly, immigrants are vital components of the U.S. labor force and crucial in helping drive the domestic economy. Foreign-born workers occupy all niches of the labor market, from low-skilled workers to physicians, yet there still exists a disparity in wages between immigrant and native workers.
