This research explores the integration of foreign workers in the Portuguese labor market. It develops two subjects: on the one hand, the position of foreign work in the general employment pattern. On the other, the impact of foreigners on the sector wage-skill schedule, i.e., on log earnings regressions. Special importance is given to job qualification, both foreign and total - partly due to data availability. Some evidence on job segmentation between foreign and locals was found. Immigrants seem to have, if any, had a positive influence in total resident earnings.
