After an influx of immigrants from Eastern Europe drove down wages and increased competition for construction jobs in England, David Day looked to a better life in the U.S. The high cost of living in the U.K. made the move more urgent. Eventually sponsored as a specialty carpenter, David moved his family to Georgia, bought a home with a big yard, and now works in the construction industry there.
