Abstract

This article explores gender differences in the characteristics, spatiality, and capacities of local social networks anThis article explores gender differences in the characteristics, spatiality, and capacities of local social networks and their impacts on the employment of recent Mexican immigrants to Los Angeles. After describing the institutional landscape of the regional labor market that new entrants must navigate to find work, it turns to unique and detailed data from a randomized household survey of Mexican immigrants in Los Angeles County. It analyzes the role of friends, family members, and neighbors in shaping occupational segregation and hourly earnings of those who migrated to the region during the preceding 5 years. Results suggest that local social networks operate differently for men and women and tend to reinforce differences in mobility and employment
