Homework Help: Canadian Pacific Railway

Posted by Emma on Tuesday, June 7, 2011 at 9:00pm.

How did the CPR employment practices discriminate agnst Chinese workers? Why do you suppose Chinese railway workers decided to remain separated from the other workers?

They were paid 1 dollar a day for the work they did, which was less than half the salary paid to white workers. The CPR was racist towards the Chinese, and didn’t have good working conditions.

I suppose because they didn’t want to hear any nasty remarks about themselves from those workers.
Have i got it right? And why else suppose?
