Did you know that the Chinese Immigrants settled in California so they could get gold and have more opportunities and get more money.
We didn’t get good wages and we also had riskier jobs than the Americans. Some of us even lost our lives.
We were treated good when we came until we came to America and the we did most of the work. The Americans got scared so we were threatened and killed.
I wonder what would have happened if the Chinese Immigrants got as many opportunities as the other diverse groups of the west?
We worked long hours and got paid less than other people. We built the most of the Transcontinental Railroad and we got paid less and most died of doing it. We did the riskier jobs.
Would you believe that the Americans used the Chinese to do most of their work and hand labor? Would you ever think that Congress started the Chinese Exclusion Act to keep more immigrants from coming to the America?
