Resum: This paper aims to analyse labour market trajectories and mobility of immigrants in Spain, in a comparative perspective with the UK and Canada. This approach gives us information about risks and uncertainty, which different working groups are exposed to (Crouch, 2008; 2009)1. Today's interest for labour mobility rests on its importance in the European Employment Strategy and the OECD goals (2009). This two institutions call for a more flexible labour market through a major mobility, thus reducing unemployment, poverty, and providing social upward progression and a better supplydemand adjustment. Hence, it allows workers to improve their occupational and social status, and therefore limiting their risk of poverty. In other words, labour upward mobility brings security, as well as it contributes to reduce risk and uncertainties among workers.
