Rebuilding New Orleans
Despite all the pain and suffering that Hurricane Katrina caused, there is hope that something good will come of the disaster. Natural disasters occur no matter what we do to prevent them, it is how we respond to them that determines the overall effects of them. Hurricane Katrina demolished houses and a city for that matter, but it also created numerous jobs. In efforts to rebuild the city, numerous immigrants, both legal and illegal have flocked to New Orleans to work. Despite the fact that some of the workers are illegal they are adding to the workforce. The work needs to be done and these are the people that are taking advantage of the situation. The work is not the most desirable of all jobs, but for those working it is of greater financial benefit than some of the other jobs that they have had to do. It is nice to see something good come of such a tragedy.
