Crazy… Michelle Obama Wants Companies to Let Employees Mentor Kids As Part of Work Week


(Reuters)
After two years of these radicals in the White House we know one thing for sure…. They have no idea how the private sector operates.

Michelle O’s latest scheme is a doozy. She wants businesses to allow employees to mentor children during part of their work week.
After all, they have nothing better to do, right?
CNS News reported, via Lucianne:

– 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.

“And that’s why today, I am thrilled to announce that the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) has teamed up with several major companies to establish a Corporate Mentoring Challenge,” Obama said at a summit held by CNCS and the National Mentoring Partnership MENTOR at the Library of Congress.

“This is a program calling on businesses of all sizes to allow their employees to mentor for short periods during the work day, giving kids positive role models and offering employees a way to give back,” Obama said. “And they’ve already received new commitments from leading companies who have agreed to harness their resources and help us make a difference on a very large scale.

“We want to do things big,” Obama said, but did not spell out details about the challenge.

This is just crazy.

Wouldn’t doing work while at work be a better way to be a role model?

Little stuff like this is where it becomes obvious that the First Lady does not believe in capitalism. Doing work or operating for-profit businesses has no value as a “public service”, and knocking off work to go do something else is “role model” behavior. To her, only government programs (now known as “initiatives”) are considered to be of value, and conducting day to day business that creates wealth has no value.
