Abstract: This paper shows that the immigration of some low skilled workers can be of advantage for the low skilled natives when the host economy suffers from unemployment due to trade unions and an unemployment insurance scheme. This benefit arises if trade unions have appropriate bargaining power and preferences for members' income, labor market discrimination against immigrants is strong enough and the unemployment tax rate is low.
