A Car Dealership in MI Goes Viral After Exposing a Panhandler
A man who has been seen panhandling in front of a dealership in Brighton, MI was exposed for his tactics.
Employees at the Brighton Honda dealer felt sympathetic towards the panhandler after seeing him day after day and, according to FOX 2 Detroit, decided to offer him a job. However, they were shocked when he turned it down stating that he makes better money doing what he already does.
In response, the dealership put him on blast and posted a sign on one of their cars warning people. A picture of the sign along with the “jobless” man himself was posted to Facebook on Tuesday.
As the sign says, the dealership offered him a full-time job for $10/hour before they were told
I make more than any of you
They suggested people donate to a better cause instead.
FOX 2 reports that the man has since been arrested for drunk and disorderly conduct.
If you’re ever concerned or feel awkward about giving a panhandler money, you can instead give them a voucher to be redeemed for necessary services. This way you know what it’s going towards.
