In this Aug. 1, 2018 photo, a man looks for a charger for his phone from a suitcase full of used chargers for sale in Los Angeles. They seem to be everywhere on the streets of Los Angeles – pushcarts and tables filled with everything from hot dogs and tamales to toys and tools. Such sales are illegal, although the law is rarely enforced. Now, after a decade of debate and compromise, the Los Angeles City Council will consider an ordinance Wednesday that would grant permits to sidewalk vendors. (AP Photo/Jae C. Hong)
