CHATTANOOGA – Congressman Chuck Fleischmann will continue his successful “Chuck on the Job” initiative this Thursday, May 24, at McDonald’s in Kingston. Congressman Fleischmann took a job mopping floors at McDonald’s for $2.10 per hour when he was 17-years-old.
“I have enjoyed the dozen jobs I have worked over the last 16 months as I have heard first-hand from employers and employees the hardships they face every day in this economy. I have learned so much from those I have worked with that has helped me do my job better on behalf of small businesses in this country. I am looking forward to working at McDonald’s as I hear more from those who are the backbone of our economy, and relive many of the memories made, and lessons learned, working at McDonald’s as a teenager,” Fleischmann said.
From a young boy overcoming the loss of his mother, to living on his own at 16, to mopping the floor of a McDonald’s, to working in a library, to starting a business with his wife and finally becoming a member of Congress, Chuck Fleischmann has lived the American dream. He ran for office so he could try to bring that American dream that he’s been privileged to be a part of, to you, to your family and to your grandchildren.
