Street vendors in Huntington Park ask for better regulations and treatment from the city 

The average street vendor in LA makes $38,038, according to Comparably, a workplace and compensation monitoring employee review platform. This pay is 20% lower than the combined average salaries of other metropolitan regions like Boston, Dallas, or New York. On November 7, the Los Angeles Street Vendor Campaign, made up of organizations such as Community Power Collective, East LA Community Corporation, Inclusive Action for the City and Public Counsel, presented a public letter to the City of Huntington Park City Council advocating for street vendors in that city. “It has come to our attention that the City of Huntington Park is engaging in a concerning pattern of harassment and regulation of vending that is not permitted by California law. Multiple local vendors have reached out to LASVC seeking assistance with criminal citations they received for vending and the impounding of their vehicles,“ states the three-page letter.
