Portland to test jobs program for street people

Portland officials are working on a 36-week pilot program to offer day jobs to street people. A city social worker would drive a van around to busy intersections and offer panhandlers a chance to earn $10.68 an hour cleaning up parks and other light labor jobs. They would be paid at the end of each day.
