The Geography of Immigrant Labor Markets: Space, Networks, and Gender (The New Americans: Recent Immigration and American Society)

Parks finds that both spatial and social accessibility matter in connecting immigrants to jobs and that gender saliently shapes immigrant labor markets. She shows how geography sustains labor market segregation among immigrants and points to a reciprocal and reinforcing relationship between ethnic residential segregation and ethnic labor market segregation. This relationship is particularly acute for some immigrant women, possibly stemming from their gendered domestic roles and reliance upon neighborhood- and household-based social networks. The collective results of this study illustrate the importance of household, neighborhood, and geography in shaping the gendered immigrant labor markets of Los Angeles.Parks finds that both spatial and social accessibility matter in connecting immigrants to jobs and that gender saliently shapes immigrant labor markets.

Anyone know a good immigration lawyer in Northern Virginia?

Question by Roy B: Anyone know a good immigration lawyer in Northern Virginia?
My company is trying to hire some software programs under the H-1 Visa program. We are a startup company so are new to the whole visa process. Our company is located in Alexandria, VA and would like to deal with a local immigration attorney. Thanks

Answer by Rudai B
I would do a search in Targetlaw or Google for northern virginia immigration attorneys. I did a couple of searches and checked out some attorney websites. Make sure the lawyers you talk to cater to businesses and corporation instead of individual visa issues.
By the way, the attorney does not need to be in your area, since immigration is on Federal not State law.
