It was intended to answer the following question: Is the peddler of a differentiated form of technology for informal street work, which is the predominant business (profit), business (the capital) and not the employee (linked to survival), which is evident separation between capital (owners of the means and money) and work (labor contractor)? This line will be activities that now serve as the veins of capital expansion? Our aim of this research: to explore the new forms of differentiation in this street work in the current Brazilian society, understand what is this new (re) configuration of the street.
