The man is often seen near the business in Brighton asking for money.

The dealership put the sign up Tuesday, reading “Please Do Not give anything to this Panhandler. We offered him a full-time job at $10.00/HR. He said: ‘I make more a day than any of you’ and he did not want a job. please donate to a more worthy cause.”
