ZHANG Cheng,TANG Lin(Center of International Economics,School of Economics,Nankai University,Tianjin,China,300071)  
The influence of Foreign Direct Investment(FDI) to the employment of host country is decided by the type of the industry which FDI enters.Generally speaking,FDI in capital-intensive industry,such as manufacturing industry,is less advantageous to the employment of the host country while FDI in labor-intensive industry such as service industry is more advantageous to the raise of employment rate of the host country.This paper,taking USA as an example,looks at the short-term relationship and long-term relationship between FDI in capital-intensive industry and the employment of the host country and those relationships between FDI in labor-intensive industry and the employment of the host country.The results show that different from other research findings,FDI in manufacturing industry can increase employment rate in both manufacturing industry and the whole employment rate either in short-term or in short-term time while FDI in service industry may increase employment rate in service industry but may decrease the whole employment rate.
