In a photo that has been shared more than 22,000 times on Facebook, a business owner identified only as “Uncle Mike” can be seen standing next to two men who were begging.
Uncle Mike, an Iowa business owner, was identified on Facebook by his nephew Michael Wooldridge, Fox News Insider reported. According to Wooldridge, Uncle Mike went up to the two men when he saw they were broke and hungry.
He then offered them jobs because business was busy, but they declined. The uncle decided to go return to the spot with a sign of his own.
“Offered These Guys a Job. They Said No. Don’t Give Money,” the sign said.
“My Uncle Mike offered these guys a job said he was busy right now could use the help they said no so he did this !! Wow don’t give these guys any money Share Share Share!!” Wooldridge wrote.
And share people did.
