If you live in and around Chicago, chances are you don’t make it through a single day without encountering an immigrant at work. Immigrants drive cabs, cook and serve food in restaurants, construct high rises, run businesses, teach, practice medicine, defend the law, and sometimes even break it to get in a day’s work.

Throughout the month of May Chicago Matters: Beyond Borders will explore immigrant experiences on the job. Be sure to check out Chicago Public Radio, WTTW11, The Chicago Reporter and the Chicago Public Library as we explore the complicated and compelling topic of immigrant labor.
