Abstract

Nauro F. Campos explains that there are many benefits to migration that are hard to gauge from an economic perspective. Central-Eastern European migrants, for example, are known to have significantly higher levels of schooling than that of native workers. These migrants take on unskilled jobs because they know they are temporary, and usually enjoy rapid career progression, he argues.
