The Candy Sellers The lives and livelihoods of some of the city’s newest migrant children
We are sharing the article: The Candy Sellers The lives and livelihoods of some of the city’s newest migrant children by Jordan Salama from New York Magazine. Several months ago, he interviewed Professor Soledad Alvarez Velasco about Ecuadorean families who have recently arrived in the U.S., particularly about the lives of mothers and sons who sell candy on the street. What he describes in NYC is what Professor Velasco has also witnessed in Chicago, not in the subway but in certain streets in downtown. Professor Velasco has talked with Ecuadorean mothers here, and there are many similarities. In the article, he mentions a part of the interview.
