We analyse the impact of immigrants on natives' wages from reduced form wage equations for The Netherlands, United Kingdom and Norway. We find very small effects on natives' wages and no dominant robust patterns of substitution and complementarity. Effects on earlier immigrants' own wages are larger but less reliable. Further work should focus on these own effects.
