Immigrant Laborers: What They Don't Teach You in School

30 minutes

History is fraught, no doubt. Today on Immigrantly, we seek to draw out its patterns and hold them against the present. In collaboration with Julia Wang and Kathy Lu from Immigrant History Initiative and Catherine Ceniza Choy a Professor of Ethnic Studies at UC Berkeley, we unveil immigrant laborers' narratives in the U.S. From the Chinese laborers who built the Transcontinental Railroad to the Mexican migrant workers employed by the Bracero program to the thousands of Filipino nurses serving as frontline workers, the important role that immigrants have played in the labor force has been misconstrued and underappreciated. We reveal these complicated truths and urge listeners to bring such awareness into their everyday lives.  Producer & Host Saadia Khan Content writers Yudi Liu, Julia Wang, Kathy Lu Editor Tom Whelan
