  • Published on: 13 May 2019
  • VICE's Will Tilghman tries to make his monthly rent of $965 by working weird jobs posted on the gigs section of New York Craigslist. After staging a photoshoot for a restaurant, screening a bad horror movie, trying a new deodorant, writing a bio for a nice mom, handing out newspapers, doing a timely impersonation of Lord Varys from “Game of Thrones”, and more, Will goes deep into the world of Craigslist to see if he can actually pay his rent by doing odd-jobs.

    At 1.50 why with three adults degree for $100 for their photos to be used in public that's like at least a $1,500 per person job so you're at fault you would have made your rent already

    Whenever people respond to people who are in poverty with things like "do some side hustle" I am going to link this video. Expecting people who are probably already working more than one job to have time for a side hustle, especially for people who have kids to spend tons of time chasing down odd jobs is just insane.
