Star Parker on minimum wage.

Friend --

Did you know Jay Leno used to work as a hamburger flipper?

In his teens, Leno worked at a McDonald's in his home-town. It was there that he learned skills about working with people and making them laugh.

In fact, he won first prize while working there performing a comedy routine for a McDonalds’s regional talent show.

Just recently, the producer of 60 Minutes went with him to that same McDonald's where he said it was the first time that Leno made money telling jokes.

Jay Leno's story embodies the America Dream and it began working minimum wage at a McDonald's.

As liberals fight to increase minimum wage above what the market is willing to pay -- thereby limiting them from hiring more teenagers and young people to learn new skills -- let us remember Leno's story, and many of our own stories where we worked in jobs that we might not have liked, but we did them and we earned our living.

This is the America we're about to lose if the progressives have their way. No one achieves the American Dream on a government program.

Watch this video of Jay Leno working at McDonald's and let me know about your first minimum-wage job and your memories, both the good and the bad, that have given you skills that have helped you in your life.



Your foot-soldier for freedom,

Star Parker

Minimum wage should not be raised so high that a young person with no experience can secure employment to learn a skill and gain experience so that he is worth more to the employer.
