Latino Immigrant Street Vendor Youth in Los Angeles: Markets of Shame and Pride

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

In Los Angeles many Latino immigrants earn income through street vending, and some of their children and teenagers are also vendors. Based on participant observation and in-depth interviews with street vending children and teens, this article highlights the agency and voices of these youth. Street vending remains a low-status, illegal occupation in Los Angeles, but the kids do it to ensure family economic survival and advancement, and because they feel a moral obligation to help their parents. The street vendor youth experience shame, stigma and humiliation with street vending, and they use several strategies to counter this. We argue that they rely principally on constructing new moral metrics of self-worth that value hard work, responsibility and being financially useful to their families.
