Obama, First Lady Want Their Daughters to Work in Character-Building Minimum Wage Jobs

Obama Family PortraitPresident Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama have said that they want their two daughters to work minimum wage jobs so they can “get a taste of what it’s like to do that real hard work”.

Speaking to news magazine Parade as the couple are set to host a Working Families Summit in Washington, both discussed their experiences at minimum wage jobs while at school and university.

Obama said he had worked as a painter, waiter and ice-cream scooper, while the first lady had worked in a bindery.

Asked by the magazine whether they want their daughters to work in character-building minimum-wage-type jobs similar to those they had, the pair agreed that they did.

Michelle Obama said: “Oh, yeah. I think every kid needs to get a taste of what it’s like to do that real hard work… That’s what life is.”

The president added: “We are looking for opportunities for them to feel as if going to work and getting a paycheck is not always fun, not always stimulating, not always fair. But that’s what most folks go through every single day.”
