On almost every Manhattan street corner, you see these people shoving flyers into people’s hands/faces. I don’t get these people that hand out flyers. Do they get paid based on the number of flyers people take? Wouldn’t you just throw away all the flyers and say people took them? But if they don’t have any incentive to get people to take a flyer, why not sit down and do nothing? Maybe they get base pay, but a commission for every flyer taken or used. Maybe I should go back and take a flyer and then ask how they get paid.
