Data for "Nativity Penalty, Legal Status Paradox: The Effects of Nativity and Legal Status Signals in the U.S. Labor Market"

Description

Abstract:
This archive contains data collection protocols, aggregate data, and code, as well as broader impacts-related materials (working paper (10.31235/osf.io/wse6n) and Op-Ed). This research was funded in part by a grant from the Law and Social Sciences Program at the National Science Foundation (NSF) under award no. 1920714. The article reporting these data has been accepted for publication in Social Forces, published by Oxford University Press. The author conducted a correspondence audit study of 1,364 jobs in eight metros to test whether employers screen out college-educated Latino men based on nativity and legal status. Employers were twice as likely to call back native-born as immigrant Latinos. Paradoxically, however, employers called back documented, work-authorized Latinos at almost the same low rates as undocumented Latinos without the right to work. A national survey experiment of 468 Human Resources representatives, and interviews with 23 HR representatives and immigration lawyers, reveal that individual concerns about immigrants’ English language ability, and organizational concerns about immigrants’ deportability, explain why employers are reluctant to hire any Latino immigrant.
