Mouctar Diallo was a political ambassador for over 15 years in Guinea. Now, he is unemployed and living in a New York City homeless shelter with his four children.

They are scientists, doctors, and engineers with years of experience, yet they are more likely to drive a cab or nanny than work in their professional careers. Hire Me investigates the systemic hurdles that prevent newcomers from breaking in and the consequences of this brain waste for our country.
