I am one of nine children.
Growing up, I delivered newspapers, shined shoes, carried golf bags, cut lawns, painted houses, worked on traveling carnivals, in restaurants and grocery stores…
I worked while I was in college and every single summer during college.
In virtually every year of my post-college life, I have had a full-time work and a part-time job.
I don’t have a union pension. My life is my responsibility, and not that of the government.
