In the East, male Irish laborers were hired by Irish contractors to work on canals, railroads, streets, sewers and other construction projects, particularly in New York state and New England.
The Irish men also worked in these labor positions in the mid-west.
They worked to construct towns where there had been none previously. Kansas city was one such town, and eventually became an important cattle town and railroad center. Some moved to New England mill towns, such as HolyokeLowellTauntonBrocktonFall Riverand Milford, Massachusettswhere owners of textile mills welcomed the new low-wage workers.
They took the jobs previously held by Yankee women known as Lowell girls. The majority of them worked in mills, factories, and private households and were considered the bottommost group in the female job hierarchy, alongside African American women.
Workers considered mill work in cotton textiles and needle trades the least desirable because of the dangerous and unpleasant conditions.
Factory work was primarily a worst-case scenario for widows or daughters of families already involved in the industry. Also, the working conditions in well-off households were significantly better than those of factories or mills, and free room and board allowed domestic servants to save money or send it back to their families in Ireland.
Subject to their employers around the clock, Irish women cooked, cleaned, babysat and more. Because most servants lived in the home where they worked, they were separated from their communities. Most of all, the American stigma on domestic work suggested that Irish women were failures who had "about the same intelligence as that of an old grey-headed negro.

Teaching was similar to domestic work for the first generation of Irish immigrants in that it was a popular job and one that relied on a woman's decision to remain unmarried. Irish schools prepared young single women to support themselves in a new country, which inspired them to instill the importance of education, college training, and a profession in their American-born daughters even more than in their sons.
Evidence from schools in New York City illustrate the upward trend of Irish women as teachers: Louis in Missouri, St. Paul in Minnesota, and Troy in New York. Additionally, the women who settled in these communities were often sent back to Ireland to recruit.
This kind of religious lifestyle appealed to Irish female immigrants because they outnumbered their male counterparts and the Irish cultural tendency to postpone marriage often promoted gender separation and celibacy.Americans with a Better Cause (ABC), a nonprofit organization, files a suit against the U.S.
