Synopsis

The number of temporary workers residing legally in the United States has grown dramatically over the last 30 years, yet little is known about their effects on the U.S. labor market. It is clear, however, that the many highly skilled workers among these migrants are causing friction within the firms and institutions that employ them--and it is equally clear that they are also providing significant benefits. Dr. Lowell and the contributors to this volume explore the labor market impacts these people are having, and lay out a variety of policy options to deal with them. Drawing upon their own extensive experience and newly available empirical work by others, the editor and contributors break new ground to provide readers with the first book-length analysis devoted exclusively to foreign temporary workers in the United States. This is an important source of data and ideas for human resource executives, upper management, and policy decision makers throughout the public sector.
