今年夏天似乎奥巴马家有一名成员甚至已经开始到南希餐厅打工。波士顿先驱报首先报道了奥巴马总统的小女儿萨沙·奥巴马(Sasha Obama)在那打工。她现年15岁。

The story says Sasha Obama is helping the restaurant get ready for its lunch service each day. She is also bringing customers their food orders at a take-out window.

One of the other workers at the restaurant said Sasha started working earlier in the week. She has been using her full name, Natasha, while on the job.
