Little Girl Gives Michelle Obama Her Unemployed Dad’s Resume
The number of unemployed still stands at 10.5 million, according to the latest stats. Which means lots of folks are still looking for jobs. And Michelle Obama recently met the daughter of an unemployed American who had a little a surprise for the First Lady.
At her annual question-and-answer session with the children of Executive Office employees who visit the White House for “Take Our Daughters and Sons To Work Day,”a young girl in the front row said that her dad had been out of work for three years. Then to Mrs. Obama’s surprise, the girl handed her her father’s resume.
The First Lady explained to the other children that the girl was “doing something for her dad” and promised look into the situation. Mrs. Obama hugged the little girl as the event ended.
No word yet on what happened next, but Mrs. Obama did grab the resume off the table and took it with her when she left the room.
We have to give it to the little girl for seeing an opportunity and taking it!
While certainly the First Family can’t help everyone in America who’s looking for work, the Obamas have talked a ton about jobs given the economy. Besides measure the President has taken, FLOTUS just recently announced a program for veterans, who have an unemployment rate higher than the general average.
