I analyze the effect of exposure to international trade on earnings and employment of spanish workers from 1995 through 2015 by exploiting industry shocks to import competition stemming from China’s spectacular rise as a manufacturing exporter matched with longitudinal data on individual earnings. Results show that individuals who in the initial period worked in manufacturing industries that experienced high import growth garner lower cumulative earnings and spend less time working for their initial firm. Earnings losses seem to be more important for workers with low initial attachment to the labor market.
