As a country whose economic success has historically hinged on the work of foreign laborers, it is important to understand the situation facing current immigrants to the US. In her recent study, "Career Placement of Skilled Migrants in the UN Labor Market: A Dynamic Approach," Ileana Neagu, of the World Bank Development Research Group, attempts a answers these questions.

Her research also concludes that initial placement and growth are inversely related.
