Episode Details

Original tape date: March 9, 2010.

The smallest of the small businesspeople struggling to make a living in New York are street vendors. They work long and hard hours, but to succeed -- instead of tax breaks -- they need a small piece of the City's sidewalks. And that is not easy for them to get. The Street Vendor's Project of the Urban Justice Center helps these hardworking entrepreneurs better protect their economic and civil rights. Sean Basinski, an attorney and the Project's executive director is Ronnie's guest in this episode.
