Homeless iPhone Panhandler

Homeless 'Honest Abe' Hagenston has been living under Detroit's 8 Mile overpass on I-75 for seven years.

Abe will shovel snow for cash but this year there's no snow.   So, Abe organized other homeless 'like a union' to panhandle in shifts.

Don’t have change? No problem, Abe says, “I take VISA, MasterCard, American Express.”   You see, Abe has a square reader attached to his iPhone.

Abe doesn't say how many have used his credit card swiper.  But one wonders...why can't Abe's tech saavy and resourcefulness land him a real job?
