The last two days I noticed a wife and husband panhandling. Yesterday was the wife who's sign said "Have 4 kids and need money for rent" while the husband stayed in the car. And 12 people people gave her money in a 1 hour span. Today the husband came by himself and actually panhandled in front of the grocery store entrance with the sign saying "homeless need money for hotel room" and 20 people gave him money in 1 hour before being told to leave by store management.

Depends did each person give a penny then you are saying like 20 cents an hour ..so if people are giving change it would be likely be around 5 bucks. So unless you know what people are giving there is no way to know.

And you could see the denomination of each of those bills from that distance? You must have excellent eyesight.

I have heard some panhandlers can make a good sum but since I don't audit any I cannot verify

@Linkat,
It was next to the café window and saw a couple of people taking,their money out and saw the $5, $10 and $50 bills.,It was really that close to me. I think these people make $500 a day if no one tells them to leave the property

@singlesucks13,
Maybe if you were capable of writing a basic sentence you wouldn't feel jealous of homeless people.

It's either Do panhandlers make ...... or Does panhandling make....

If you could write that, you could write a sign saying, homeless and hungry please help.

Perhaps there's a course you could take at a community college.

Most importantly, did you know if he/they declared the money on their tax returns?

Also, quite important is what kind of car do they drive? Inquiring minds want to know.

Fact is that Panhandling has been around for centuries. Did you just discover it?

Why not stick to your PS video games?! Did you ever follow up on your claim for your lost Amazon package?

In the grand scheme of things, with senseless war in the Ukraine and innocent
people dying, who cares about panhandlers?!

Well there are intrinsic values in being gainfully employed and other benefits at least at most jobs - not all jobs may include each benefit but some I can think of:

Personal pride at working and earning an income as a result
Contributing to the betterment of society
Potential to move up and earn more money
Opportunity to train, learn a trade, gain real life working experience
Health care, 401k, tuition reimbursement, child care,
Not being afraid of being arrested for "panhandling", loitering
Not being afraid of having people put you down, get beat up or having someone try to steal your panhandling money

So if you think that panhandling is worth it - nothing is stopping you. Go for it.

What you see in a few incidents like that doesn't tell the panhandlers' story, necessarily. If they can't get jobs for whatever reason they still need a home and groceries. A momentary wallet with money today doesn't mean it's always full. Our society has gotten to the point where it forces homelessness on ever more people. Gofundme is becoming a hallmark of the national character because of the insane demand on resources.

@singlesucks13,
Pardon me, have you tried the job center or even moving to a state where they have job center and going on the public assistance and getting into section 8, or temporary shelter or housing ???

I have no idea what state or nation you are from but honestly I do not care anymore. I wish I had the guts to stand up do nothing with a sign and get free money.
