This was a well written, fascinating study. The author got to know about a dozen Mexican dishwashers working in a restaurant in Chicago. She not only saw their lives at work but also their living situations in Chicago.

She also went to their hometown in Mexico to see the reasons for their immigration and the impact of the remittances they sent home. I like the way it was presented.

This book was assigned to me in a class and I have to say this book offered an eye opening experience of how people from Central America are directly immigrating to the US because of policies that our country has in place. Another reason has been the rising level of crime that I have caused many to parents to send their children often times alone to America in order to avoid death and have a better life. Truly a sad situation to have to be in for the family. One person found this helpful.
