Abstract

This research examines earnings differentials among Mexican American, black, and white male workers. The results suggest (1) that human capital and structural items are important components of earnings differentials among the three groups and account for most of the white-Mexican American and white-black earnings gap; (2) that Mexican Americans and blacks have different labor market experiences as reflected in their earnings profiles; and (3) that blacks face somewhat Stifter forms of discrimination in the labor market relative to Mexican Americans, though both groups face considerable discrimination relative to white males.
