Switzerland -Cross-border work in Ticino region analysed -October 22, 2015

A study commissioned by the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) and led by the Institute of Economic Research (IRE) at the University of Italian Switzerland in Lugano, examines the consequences of cross-border workers – or ‘frontalieri’ – on Ticino’s job market. After publication was pushed back several times, its controversial conclusions were finally leaked to the press. The study concludes that nothing proves that resorting to cross-border workers has increased the risk of unemployment among the resident population – neither in Switzerland nor in Ticino.
