While it seems unlikely that immigration will damage the employment of ethnic Danes in the long term, in the short term the employment of immigrants can give rise to significant adjustment costs for native workers. They may be obliged to change their employment, or may suffer a period of unemployment. This paper reports on a study of the effects that immigrants have on the employment of their Danish colleagues in the workplace.
