YAKIMA, Wash. (AP) — Most people holding signs at Yakima intersections are panhandling for money.

Lance Forsee was holding a sign this week looking for another kind of help — employees.

He told KIMA-TV he was "thinking outside the box" to fill five jobs at his landscaping business.

It worked. The business lobby was filled with people filling out applications because they saw "the guy on the corner with the sign."
