People of Glassell Park: Lourdes Cerda
Tengo como 40 y tantos años aquí. Me dedico a vender mis nopalitos para acabalar la renta porque no acabalo la renta para lo que recibo del seguro ... $925 para la renta y recibo $826.
Dos veces por semana [hago este trabajo]. Empiezo a las 4 a.m. y termino hasta las 3 de la tarde. Voy hasta la Olympic y la Soto a traerlos en el bus.
I've been living in this area for forty-something years. My job is to sell these "nopalitos" (cactuses) so I can make rent, because I don't make enough money with what I receive from social security. My rent's $925 and I only receive $826.
Twice a week I'm out here working. I start at 4 a.m. and end around 3 p.m.. I go all the way down to Olympic and Soto to bring my nopales by bus.
The above interview is transcribed and edited from the following interview:
Social distancing means fewer people can use storm shelters, which are boosting hygiene provisions, while movement restrictions could hamper the delivery of emergency aid.
Female former factory workers hope to use university degrees to improve workers’ rights after Rana Plaza and coronavirus pandemic.
These profiles highlight the intersections of COVID-19 and other social and economic indicators in specific neighborhooods in L.A. County.
I became passionate about making natural body care products not only to address the contaminants of pharmaceuticals, but also to connect with my Mayan ancestry.
