Street stall economy of Chongqing recovers
Under the light of the cake stand, there is an attractive aroma, which has the smell of sesame and osmanthus. The stall owner steamed the cake skillfully, and the child wrote his homework behind her. She told the reporter that at the best of times, she can earn more than 700 yuan a day. It’s no problem to solve the livelihood of the family. She can earn money and take time to look after her child.
Ms. Feng is also the “old man” of this night market. Her barbecue stall looks organized, and the meat and vegetarian dishes are very rich in varieties. Many people who are out of work are willing to come here to “shove” a few strings.
In addition to the elderly who set up stalls all the year round, recently this street has also ushered in many “new stall runners”. The young man who set up the stall was a businessman who was in red wine business and could not afford the rent for three or four months during the epidemic. So, he went to work and set up stalls at night during the past two days, selling jackfruit. “I can earn more than 100 yuan a day to subsidize my family. As long as we can survive, it’s nothing to do something except my own work,” he said.
