This digital collection is the result of research that examines the effects of nativity and legal status on the labor market prospects of Latino students exiting higher education. Specifically, this project tests in a field and survey experimental framework whether and how employers screen Latino male student job applicants based on nativity and legal status for entry-level employment positions. This project includes all the instruments, protocols, documentation, and data for other scholars interested in experimental design to replicate the results, adapt them for use in other contexts, or expand them to other treatments. The project also includes other forms of writing, which will continue to be updated, for colleges, companies, and non-profit organizations to learn more about hiring rights, diversity, equity, and inclusion, and the school-to-work transition.
There are two main objectives for the societal impacts of this project. The first is to enable scholars from a wide variety of disciplines to easily access and utilize these documents, whether that be to adapt them for their own purpose, or expand them to other labor market, schooling, or treatment contexts. The second objective is to enable institutions of higher education, immigrant-serving organizations, companies, and students to easily learn from the results.
