We consider a simple overlapping generations model with exogenous fertility that analyzes the effects of the institutions of labor market and remittances on unemployment. In our model, the remittances take the form of insurance against involuntary unemployment. In this environment, it was shown that remittances sent by the diaspora provide consumption and savings and increase the amount of national physical capital. Since the rate of unemployment decreases with the size of the national investment, remittances tend to decrease the level of unemployment. However, we have shown that these remittances cannot be sufficient to restore full employment of the country.
