The impact of state-led immigration reform: Labor market evidence from Arizona
4:00 PM -  5:30 PM
Steven Raphael

Arguably the most restrictive of such efforts is Arizona's 2007 Legal Arizona Workers Act (LAWA), which in part holds employers accountable for verifying worker eligibility. Dr. Raphael's lecture will assess the labor market effects of LAWA and whether LAWA has changed the demographic composition of Arizona's resident population.
