Abstract [en]

We present a large survey with responses from Swedish firms on their attitudes towardsrefugees, regarding hiring, job performance, wage setting and discrimination. There is a greatdeal of heterogeneity in attitudes, but experience of having refugees on the payroll reducesnegative attitudes to them. Firms’ reasons for ceasing to have refugees as employees are notrelated 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 employmentenhancing tend to not agree.#
