Abstract [en]

We present a large survey with responses from Swedish firms on their attitudes towards refugees, regarding hiring, job performance, wage setting and discrimination. There is a great deal of heterogeneity in attitudes, but experience of having refugees on the payroll reduces negative attitudes to them. Firms’ reasons for ceasing to have refugees as employees are not related to discrimination of refugees by staff or customers, but rather to poor job performance. While most firms agree with statements that wage cuts negatively affect worker cohesion, effort or the quality of applicants, employers who consider such cuts as employment enhancing tend to not agree.
