Filipinos moved to the United States in 1898 where they worked in domestic service, agriculture or became students. Between 1906 to 1935, a high number of Filipinos moved to Hawaii as plantation works in sugar and pineapple fields. In 1965 after the Immigration Act, the educated Filipino population worked in the medical and technical industry.
