Event description

Description

Chinese restaurants, Korean dry cleaners, Vietnamese nail salons: the phenomenon of immigrant work clusters is pervasive enough to elicit both stereotypes and serious study. What’s driving immigrants to these particular industries with long hours and low pay? We’ll bring together a panel of Philadelphians to share their own experiences.

Becoming U.S.
This program is presented as part of our series Becoming U.S.: Community Conversations about Immigration. Becoming U.S. is an ongoing series of programs designed to encourage sharing across ethnicity, race, and citizenship status. We want to hear and learn from each other about the human endeavor of transition and settlement.
