From time to time mill owners replaced their Asian workers with white workers. In 1914 the Canadian Pacific Lumber Company brought in white workers to replace the Asian workers. However, drastic changes like this did not last long. Asian workers were good workers and they were willing to work longer hours and for less money. In fact, it was due to the presence of the Asian workers that many white workers kept their jobs. For example, during times of economic difficulty white workers' wages remained the same while Asian workers were forced to take a pay cut.
