Paid to Spend a Penny


People in rural India given the opportunity to get a dollar, simply by spending a penny!  The trial in Musiri, a remote town in Tamil Nadu state, is aimed at cleaning up the streets and providing basic hygiene in an area where urinating in public is common.  Agriculture officials are also investigating if the waste can be used as a crop fertiliser.

Anyway you look at it, getting paid about a dollar to spend a penny is the best return anyone is going to get in the current economic climate.  No wonder people are queuing up!
