abstract
"The early Chinese Americans belonged to the low-income class. They struggled to make a living and to gain a foothold, often in hostile environments. Many Chinese went into the labor-intensive laundry business whose growth aroused resentment from the whites. Such resentment led to the California government enacting many measures and laws targeting Chinese laundries. So many turned to running Chinese restaurants. Their life, like the popular dish that is a staple in all Chinese restaurants, was 'sweet and sour.'"--Container.
