The Union Pacific relied on Irish and African American workers. The Central Pacific hired Chinese workers. The immigrant workers were low-paid and did difficult work.
The Central Pacific relied on workers from the country of China, and the Union Pacific Company relied on workers from many nationalities, like African Americans, Native Americans, Irish, and so on. Hope this helps!
