The article focuses on research work on labor market, conducted at the University of California, Los Angeles, (UCLA) California. Economist Walter Fogel is revising his manuscript entitled Mexican Illegal Alien Workers in the U.S. He describes the illegal alien phenomenon and associated impact on labor markets and recommends certain policy considerations. Fogel is also examining the influence of both market and institutional forces on occupational wage determination. Economist Daniel J.B. Mitchell and Fogel are examining the determination of wage differentials. Their study deals with pattern bargaining, and the issue of whether wage settlements in different industries are linked through direct equity comparisons of wages. Part of the study deals with occupational and industrial wage differentials. Mitchell is preparing a separate study on the impact of collective bargaining in the public sector, which will be part of a volume being prepared by the IRRA, UCLA. He reviews existing literature on the effects of collective bargaining in government and also on compensation and other economic matters.
