Stand in street and cause confusion.
$$: Minimum wage for municipal construction crew, which turns out to be more than many employees make at corporate jobs.
Duties: Stand at "active" road construction zones and wave traffic away from the guys who are chatting, having coffee and a smoke before they go back to chatting, smoking, and having coffee.
The upside: Wave drivers on cell phones into a ditch.
The downside: You're the only one working at the site. That's really not fair.
The dark side: Lots of exhaust in your face.
