Summary
How the other half works solves the riddle of Americas contemporary immigration puzzle: why an increasingly high-tech society has use for so many immigrants who lack the basic skills that todays economy seems to demand. Waldinger and Lichter isolate the key factors that explain the presence of unskilled immigrants in our midst. Focusing on Los Angeles, the capital of todays immigrant America, this hard-hitting book elucidates the other side of the new economy, showing that hiring is finding not so much ones own kind but rather the right kind to fit the demeaning, but indispensable, jobs many American workers disdain
