This article briefly explains the Chinese immigrants working at the Sampson boot mill.  Sampson hired many Chinese workers because the ones he had working for him were going on strike. This article just tells about the Chinese workers at the mill. The good thing about getting Chinese immigrants was that they worked for less money and made better quality shoes. Sampson saw this as an opportunity and took advantage of that. Before Sampson saw failure in his eyes when his original employees quit, but now that turned into success which made Sampson extremely enthused.
