Michigan Auto Dealership Says Local Panhandler Rejected Job Offer: ‘I Make More Money Than Any of You’

Donating money to someone in need makes a person feel better, but what if the one receiving the donations isn’t as in need as is lead to believe?

Panhandling is a fancy word used to describe homeless people who beg for money because they don’t have a job. However it has been discovered that some of these panhandlers aren’t homeless and have been offered jobs they refuse to take because apparently panhandling is a lucrative gig. One man in Michigan turned down $10 an hour of honest work because panhandling pays more.

Via Breitbart:

A Brighton, MI auto dealership put out a sign discouraging people from giving money to a local panhandler after managers said they offered him a job that he turned down because it was less money than he was currently making, says a ClickonDetroit report.

The sign, placed under the hood of a car at the dealership was created as a public service announcement, read, “Please do not give anything to this panhandler. We offered him a full-time job at $10 per hour. He said, ‘I make more than any of you,’ and he did not want the job. Please donate to a more worthy cause.”

Per the report, a duo of men, described as father and son, stand on the side of the road with signs saying, “Homeless, please help.”

The two men were arrested but were reportedly back on the side of the road again not long after with two new signs.

One read, “You can’t afford a one-bedroom apartment on $10 per hour.” The other said, “The median income in Livingston County is $70,000.”

Wow, what a bunch of BS! If $10 an hour can’t afford you a living than get two jobs. Depending on strangers to support your lazy entitled a** is pathetic.
