Arkansas program pays homeless people minimum wage to clean up trash

In Little Rock, Arkansas, homeless people are getting paid a minimum wage to pick up trash as part of a trial program. The program, called Bridge to Work, formed shortly after an ordinance passed last month, pays homeless people $9.25 per hour to help collect trash. The PWD is reportedly paying $80,000 in funding to the program, which is slated to operate from April 1 to September 27.
