This week’s theme is Immigrants at Work: How do new immigrants and refugees adjust to work life in America and contribute to the economy and workforce? For many the image of the American dream that they came with is very different than the American economic and social reality they face once they arrive.
Included are discussion questions and additional resources to deepen your understanding of immigration issues.
Tell us about your experience in the comments section.
