Description:

With no jobs in the country, vendors say Hanoi and Saigon's sidewalk cleanup campaigns won't drive them away.Official government data from 2015 showed that migrants aged between 15 and 59 made up 17.3 percent of the country's population of 90 million. The majority of them work in the unofficial sector, which means they have no contracts or insurance, and pay no taxes. This sector is believed to make up 20 percent of the country's gross domestic product.
