Faced with discrimination, early Chinese immigrants had little choice but to create their own economic niche. From the turn of the twentieth century into the 1950s, generations of Chinese immigrants toiled as laundry workers. This book poignantly describes why the Chinese laundry remains a symbol of hard work, sacrifice and enduring hardship.
