Earn $100 on The Regular For Standing in Franklin Barbecue's Line

Paying people to stand in line for Franklin Barbecue is nothing new, but Do512 has turned up a rare steady gig. A Craigslist posting offers $100, which they optimistically price out as $33/hour, for standing in line for Franklin Barbecue twice a week. The unnamed business will then delivery the purchased barbecue to their "clients."

The Franklin Barbecue line is now supporting its own mini-economy. There's the guy renting chairs and companies who wish to employ part time line-waiters, not to mention the Twitter account documenting the line and the endless thinkpieces about said line. Meanwhile, Aaron Franklin just wants people to stop showing up so early.
