    To write my essay on this, we need to know the reasons of immigration. In the late 1800s, people in many parts of the world decided to leave their homes and immigrate to the United States. Crop failure, land and job shortages, rising taxes, and famine, there were many such reasons for leaving their country and moving to other places.

    About 2.5 million Irish people came to the United States. In 1800 there was a big famine which forced the Irish to immigrate to United States in search of food and better life. These famine immigrants were the first big wave of poor refugees ever to arrive in the U.S. and Americans were simply overwhelmed. Upon arrival in America, the Irish found the going to be quite tough. With no one to help them, they immediately settled into the lowest rung of society and waged a daily battle for survival. Irishmen took any unskilled jobs they could find such as cleaning yards and stables, unloading ships, and pushing carts. There were never enough jobs for them, and employers often took advantage of these immigrants. Men were generally paid less than other workers, and women less than men.

    After 1840 most Irish Catholic immigrants went directly to the cities, mill towns, and railroad or canal construction sites in the east coast. In upstate New York, the Great Lakes area, the Midwest and the Far West, many became farmers or ranchers. In the East, Irish laborers were hired by Irish contractors to work on canals, railroads, streets, sewers and other construction projects, particularly in New York state and New England. A large fraction of Irish Catholic women took jobs as maids in hotels and private households. The Irish immigrants had to stay in cheap housing, charging Irish families up to $1.50 a week to live in a single nine-by-eleven foot room with no water, sanitation, ventilation or daylight. This resulted into unsanitary conditions and most kids were unable to survive till the age of six.
