For generations, Asian American immigrants have settled in Silicon Valley in search of economic and other life opportunities. Since that time, these ethnic communities have shaped and steered the innovation, development, and technological growth that uniquely characterize the region today. This chapter provides a brief timeline of the history and contributions of Asian American immigrants in Silicon Valley.
Nenita, an elderly Filipina woman, works hard as a room attendant in the hotel industry. Despite workplace injuries and mounting health issues, she cannot afford to visit the doctor or take time off. In response, Nenita is an active member of the union committee, advocating for workplace changes that will improve the lives of those around her. Her hope lies in the dream that one day her children will receive green cards and join her in America.
