What Pan Handlers and Buskers Earn

WBEZ in Chicago interviewed a panhandler, a street musician and a magician about how much they’re able earn in a single day. The answer: Anywhere from $60-$100 a day, but also $0 depending on a lot of variables like the weather, police, and days when people simply aren’t interested in giving. (Thanks to Rachel for the pointer).
