The use of Irish immigrants as workers, the use of veterans of the civil war.
The Chinese, Irish, and the Americans worked on the Transcontinental Railroad. The Chinese had 11,000 workers and they are greatly cheered today because without them, the railroad would not have been completed that fast. I'd say how slow it still takes us Americans to build schools and new roads that we might still be working on the First Transcontinental Railroad today!! The Chinese were paid 28 dollars a month and worked from before sunrise to way after sundown. When the Chinese have a job to do they stick to it!!! - KK
Irish and Chinese immigrants provided a large portion of the workforce to build the Transcontinental Railroad.
Most Irish and Chinese immigrants were recriuted to come over to American and work on building the transcontinental railroad. Working conditions were so terrible, many people died while on the job.
