Worker Profiles: The Struggle

In this assignment, each member of our class scoured far and wide for an immigrant worker to interview in order to demonstrate the kinds of jobs people get after immigrating to the United States. Our classmates met individuals of all ethnicities and spanning all fields of work, acquiring a proper scope of immigrant occupations. We met people ranging from Soviets to Ecuadorians, performing jobs varying from teachers to doctors to grocers. This gave us a deeper understanding of the plight of immigrants and the act of working in general. Listed below are the interviews we were able to procure from these vital workforce constituents.
