Marcus Homeless Worker FB Cesi Abi

When this homeless man asked a restaurant owner for spare change, she gave him a job, instead.

Rather than giving him a handout and turning her back on his future, Cesia Abigail asked Marcus why he didn’t have a job. He bowed his head in embarrassment but said, honestly, that no one would hire him because he had a criminal record.

Abigail didn’t think that was fair and, despite business being slow, she hired him on the spot to wash dishes for a couple of hours.

When she offered him a sandwich, he immediately wrapped up half of it and took it outside to a homeless woman on the street. Abigail said in a Facebook post his act of kindness really touched her.

Marcus started showing up on time every day at Abi’s Cafe at 1532 E Lake St in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Abigail continued to find the money to pay him for a daily two-hour shift for a couple of weeks, until she decided to make the job permanent.

Now she’s helping Marcus to save ten percent of his paycheck so he can try to get ahead.

“Just like Marcus, I had my help,” Abigail told CBS News. “People need to have someone believe in them.”
