Abstract

Social transformation is motivated by the desire to have a better life in the future. This desire encourages people to migrate. However, the people who migrate do not equip themselves with skills, causing difficulties in facing job competition. Unskilled people ultimately choose informal-sector jobs, one of them being a street vendor. The development of street vendors, especially in urban areas, causes many problems, including social disorder. This research employed a qualitative approach, the subjects of the research were street vendors who migrated from outside the city chosen as the research location. The process of collecting data by observation, interviews, and triangulation of data collection techniques. The street vendors choose public places as their selling locations, causing congestion and chaos. The chaos affects the mobility of the people. In addition, people do not get their rights as pedestrians, because the sidewalk that is intended for pedestrians has changed in its function. The people are actually not aware that they have supported the existence of the street vendors. This becomes a dilemma, where on one the one hand, the street vendors can accommodate the public needs of cheap goods, but on the other hand the existence of street vendors causes the city to be chaotic. Furthermore, these street vendors are mostly non-skilled migrants, thereby increasing the burden of the city. To solve the problem required cooperation between government, street vendors, and the community, especially for the public need awareness to not support the existence of street vendors by not becoming consumers of street vendors.
