President Barack Obama and wife Michelle want their daughters Malia and Sasha to get a taste of what it’s like to work for minimum wage. The president and first lady both worked minimum-wage jobs before they went to law school and tell Parade magazine they want the same sort of experience for their teenage daughters.

I wouldn't hire either one.....

Of course, as taught by their parents, they can lie on their resumes and get a job with the DNC or other Dhimmie company....

How about letting them ride the train unaccompanied from the southern Mexico border to Texas.

Sasha and Malia. All those people that wait on you and the staff your parents and grandmother terrorize are minimum wage workers.

How about a stent in the military as in “service to one’s country”...rather than trying to show “low wage earners” as less than.....

There it is! I hadn’t yet seen a meaningless, symbolic, worthless B.S. gesture from the WH today.

The breath-taking arrogance. They get a "taste" of what life is like working for minimum wage while their father is the president and their family is worth a fortune. They have no idea what its like to economize and budget and do without while you are waiting for the next paycheck. But they can put on their resume that they worked a prol job and thus, care for the "little people" when they move on to a $600K per year media make-work job.

Why not have them pull weeds in Moochies garden instead of union-scale groundskeepers?

And not for just 5 minutes while the cameras are clicking.

By the time I was 16, I had been working and paying taxes for 2 years, while going to school, tending to our farm animals and farming our 200 acres while my father worked out-of-town

I thought they would get do-nothing jobs at NBC for $600,000.

To many people out of work that need the job to feed their familys but give it to a snot nose kid belonging to most hated president in the USA..

Malia Obama has entered the working world, and, predictably, she's not bussing tables or folding clothes at Forever 21. According to The Wrap, the 15-year-old First Daughter was spotted working as a production assistant on CBS’s forthcoming sci-fi series Extant, produced by prominent Obama donor Steven Spielberg. The show stars Halle Berry as an astronaut returning from a year alone in space, whose experiences somehow “change the course of human history.” A source close to the production said that Malia “helped with computer shop alignments and the director also let her slate a take.” Meanwhile, Sasha Obama continues to freeload off her parents

They are probably waiting on her..She has how many secret service men watching her?How much is that costing the tax payers?

Shouldn’t they also get a “taste” of:

(1) Food Stamps

(2) Medicaid

(3) Subsidized apartments

(4) Student loans

(5) Affirmative Action quota jobs

(6) And, the Earned Income Tax Credit

They will never get a “taste of minimum wage” because they will always have their parents who will provide for their every need until they are out of college and have money of their own.

They should have them go to public school ... instead of one of the most expensive private schools in the country

Why, does he think a stint at a minimum-wage job will help them to aspire to doing something BETTER with their lives? imagine that!

I grew up on a vegetable farm doing the jobs that Americans supposedly just won't do now. Each summer some of our school buddies would come to work for my father too. Remember having to take salt tablets and drinking gallons of water during those hot summer days covered in sweat and grime.

Send the moochettes to the fields to work with the illegals Obama wants to give citizenship to.

“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,” the president said. “But that’s what most folks go through every single day.”

What’s “not fair” about GETTING A PAYCHECK????
Maybe it’s that bit about the workers throwing off their chains...?

Jus’ Mooch doin’ more talkin’ down to the fo’ks, I specs

How about letting them ride the train “unaccompanied from the southern Mexico border to Texas.”

How about feeding them Moochie’s school lunch menus at home and at school?

How about having them shop for the burkas that they will have to wear if Obama’s muslim sharia law prevails?

oh, good one... Now there’s an example of “unstimulating” work for an “unfair” paycheck...

Reminds me of the Saturday Night Live skit with Gilda Radner and Laraine Newman. Newman was playing Amy Carter in school. Radner was in pig tails. Dan Aykroyd and Chevy Chase were playing her Secret Service agents. Radner starts complaining that the SS agents were giving “Amy” the answers. The SS agents silent Radner.

This was back when Saturday Night Live really was funny.

How about we be a tad more specific about minimum wage jobs they held. In O’s case, he probably confused minimum work jobs with minimum wage jobs. Perhaps he had a few no show minimum wage jobs at the first time??

The “emancipation proclamation” would be a more suiting ambition, yea?
