    When the pandemic hit, the food truck’s sales began to plummet, Aviles said. Because the two have a close father-daughter relationship, Aviles would often ask him about his sales for the day. He sometimes would earn $ 60, $ 40 o $ 20 in a day. But this time, he told her he had made as little as $ 6 el sábado pasado.
