The so-called ‘boat people’ who fled Viet Nam in the late 1970s were often seen as a burden and were often refused refuge elsewhere. Eventually, the United States of America accepted many of them. Most arrived with little or no English, few assets or no relevant job skills. Yet Vietnamese refugees now have a higher employment rate than people born in the United States and higher average incomes, too.
