Every summer, thousands of international students descend upon America’s resorts and tourist towns to clean hotel rooms, wash dishes and make pizzas for Americans on vacation. Elena and Nikoleta are college freshmen from small towns in Eastern Europe who need to earn money to pay tuition and help their struggling families.
