Since their husbands were laid off, bringing in little or no money, the women went out to look for part time jobs such as being a maid to the wealthier families. The women also had a hard time keeping her young children in school, especially if they lived on a farm because the children would need to help their mother and father with the animals and crops, so they wouldn’t get a proper education.

Immigrants will only continue to impact the United States positively. Not one part of the United States was made without involving immigrants. Americans can not survive without the help of immigrants because immigrants have created so many inventions that are the basic needs of people.
