First lady Michelle Obama on Tuesday said she was thrilled to announce a new program that asks U.S. businesses to allow employees to spend part of the work day volunteering with young people. The program will be run by the federal agency tasked with overseeing volunteerism in the United States.

Bawney Fwank has come out in favor of more time rearing youth.
Mentoring youth to do what....Employees are fathers and mothers...tell them to mentor their kids on their time.
As a parent I work with youth every day. They are called my children - I take them to sports and homework and all the thing AFTER work that have to be scheduled into the day.
There is no better “mentor” THAN A FRIGGING JOB !!!
Maybe today’s yoots would have a better chance at unemployment without;
1. Illegal aliens
2. The minimum wage
3. Government taxation and interference
A typically “suspicionless” leftist. She never had an actual job and doesn’t understand that in the real world, they do happen to exist!!!
got no problem with this.
Your right on that one...employers pay employee’s to work. Let them mentor on their own dime....the woman is a nut case.
Is “clueless dopes” a euphemism for “communists”?
So...who is gonna pay to fly the kids to Communist China to mentor the kids?
There sure ain’t any jobs here Michelle, dear....
A lot of employers have already given their employees time off. Its called “unemployment”
Maybe the federal government employees will jump on this. Most of them are incompetent anyway, and waste our taxpayer money. So, why not waste more by not being on the job?
She is stupid as stupid can be.
That’s really gonna boost efficiency.
Do these never-had-a-real-job ideological idiots ever give a second’s thought to productivity? Despite all of their efforts, not everyone is as of yet in a make-work government position. Some folks actually do jobs that produce real products and services. They should be encouraged to work — not told to take time off to play with the kiddies. The woman is a shiftless, walking disaster.
“Volunteerism”. LOLOLOLOL! In Michelle’s eyes, we’re all just slaves for the state.
Yeah, that will really increase productivity! These people do not live in the real world. If “employees” are going to mentor youth, they can and do mentor youth and not slack off their jobs while doing so. They do it o their own time and on their own dime. Has she ever managed an office full of people in her life? What if someone told her that her 100 White House staffers were going to spend part of their work week “mentoring youth”? I have an idea. She should go first.
Thanks for saving me the keystrokes.
The best way for businesses to mentor youth is to hire them.
Make it easier for businesses to hire them and you’ll solve all kinds of problems.
I agree with post #7. Stop raising the minimum wage (especially for underage kids), and stop allowing illegal workers onto the market, and the demand for young workers will rise. Nothing prepares a kid for adulthood like working for his money (and the interacting with adults that comes along with it).
They used to encourage it, with high school programs that allowed a kid to take partial credit for paid work.
