Homeless Rather Get Handouts Than Work
A Phoenix news crew with hidden cameras went around the city to see if the homeless people would actually accept work as their cardboard signs claimed. They offered $20 to each homeless person in exchange for one hour of landscaping work.
The result is not surprising.
Homeless people would rather stand at street corners to wait for hand-outs than do actual work.
To all the people who say "if the news crew would offer more money, maybe the homeless person would leave his corner".
$20 for one hour of landscaping work is a lot of money.
Plus, don’t forget “beggars can’t be choosers”.
