Nov 28 2023: Rethinking the 'Ethnocentric Firm': Place of Education and Attainment Among White-Collar Migrants to Japan

Scholars contend that Japanese firms hold white-collar foreign workers to a far higher bar for assimilation than do employers in other countries. This model of the ethnocentric firm suggests that the growing number of foreign-educated white-collar migrants in Japan should face steep labor market penalties, compared to migrants educated in Japan, because they have had fewer opportunities to familiarize themselves with Japanese working styles and norms. We test this hypothesis using a sample of 546 Asian white-collar foreign workers.
