At this point in the novel, the men were unable to find work because jobs were given to imported labor.

They imported slaves, although they did not call them slaves: Chinese, Japanese, Mexicans, Filipinos.They live on rice and beans, the business men said. They don't need much. They wouldn't know what to do with good wages.
