Finding a good foothold in the labor market is a crucial test for the second generation in western Europe and the United States. In recent years, as large numbers of the children of immigrants have come of age and embarked on their careers, we can begin to see what place they will occupy as adults. Knowing whether they are finding satisfactory employment in the economic mainstream is a significant first indicator of whether their working lives will be on par with those of their majority peers or whether they will remain a group apart from the broader society.
