No offense to anyone here, but I feel a few things must be said......
Is it Greed morfangdakka? Could what your witnessing simply be uneducated people who can only make good money by selling a product or working insane hours to make a good days tip?
It really comes down to what you require as an individual. Most of those people make their living suckering people like that for a few bucks. Honeswtly do not blame them, for at the end of the day they are no different from you or me expect in the methods they choose.
The staff members did absolutely nothing to even discourage him. Bearing in mind this man struggles for a bed every night, is it really ethical to be selling him 50+ euro of plastic without a second thought?
Should he, he is doing the job he was hired for. Unethical yes! Possibly immoral, maybe? Necessary, absolutely! The homeless man is a struggling addict of heroin/alcohol you say; why do you feel sorry for him? If he chooses to let those people talk him into spending his wealthfare money then perhaps he should choose more wisely. Besides what would you rather have McMuffin? A guy spending your tax money on Warhammer miniatures that could become a cure for his addiction, or a guy who takes your money and keeps buying hostel services, Booze, and Drugs? Personally I'll taske the former.
His money, his choice, he bears the consequences. It's Life, suck it up!
Dublin is facing a serious plague of homelessness and poverty among inner city communities, largely down to substance and alcohol abuse, and if you actually walk around the city you'd definitely see evidence of it, even in so called high-street areas.
AHAHAHAHA, LOL. Welcome to the world dude, even in beautiful Downtown Boston, Ma, USA we see this stuff.
a serious plague of homelessness and poverty among inner city communities,
Sadly it's the drugs man. alcohol's always been a factor, but with the spread of the Heroin Plague every city in the world is seeing this. We need to find the Heroin Cartels and kill them all.....seriously before it get completely out of hand.
