LifeHomeless Man Gets Offered A Day Of Work, Ends Up Surprising Everyone At The Worksite

Roofer JayJay Murray recently took to Facebook to tell the story of a homeless man who helped JayJay and his colleagues out on a job. That story has gone viral, and for all the right reasons, too.

JayJay and his colleagues at Empire UPVC & Roofing Specialists in Waltham Cross met the homeless man, named John, who lived on a bench in London. They brought him a cup of tea in the morning, and offered him the chance to come and help them on their job the next day.

John was the first on the site. JayJay remarked that he’d never seen someone so eager to work

JayJay and his colleagues at Empire UPVC & Roofing Specialists in Waltham Cross met the homeless man, named John, who lived on a bench in London. They brought him a cup of tea in the morning, and offered him the chance to come and help them on their job the next day.

John was the first on the site. JayJay remarked that he’d never seen someone so eager to work.

At lunch, the workers bought John a meal at Burger King. At 1:00 pm he said that a payment of £15 ($20) would be sufficient for his time, but the workers pulled together a £70 ($90) payment, instead. Then, they asked him if he’d like to come back for more work.
