Kriss Wilkies, 23 a homeless man was given a job and a place to stay is back on the streets.

Garage owner Shehzad Zaman wanted Kriss to start fresh so he gave him a job at his car wash.

Kriss who is back on the streets begging claims he had to leave his job after a dispute over wages.

Mr Zaman also confirmed that Kriss no longer works at his Car wash.

Mr Zaman added that other employees at the car wash complained about Kriss.

Kriss told Birmingam Mail: “I just want to work and earn a decent living and now I’m back to square one.”

Mr Zaman would walk pass Kriss everyday so one day he decided to offer him a job.

When the story of MR Zaman helping a homeless man touched the hearts of everyone and all praised him for the good gesture.


Mr Zaman said at the time: “I saw Kriss on the street right outside the garage when I used to finish work.
“He would be collecting money by the traffic lights and I said to him, ‘you’re a local lad, you don’t need to be doing this, come and work for us instead’.

“He came in for a two-week trial and worked hard and showed me he was capable of doing what we do. He now works part-time and I have found him a room in one of my son’s houses.

“Kriss has had a lot of setbacks but I wanted to give him a chance to make something of his life.

“He’s happy and enjoying working with us.”

But Kriss spoke of his despair at being back on the streets.

“Do people think I want to be living off hand outs?,” he said.

“People offer me money but I don’t want it. I don’t want to buy drugs and I am not on drugs, I just want to be warm and safe and earn an honest living.

“I hate the fact that I am now back to sleeping anywhere I can find a shelter and begging people for food.

“This is not how I want to live my life.”
