Andrew Yang Used to Burn His Hands on Hot Dishes as a Busboy at a Chinese Restaurant
People on the internet are relating so much to Andrew Yang after he recounted on Twitter his time working as a busboy at a Chinese restaurant.
Yang, a Democratic 2020 presidential candidate, shared the relatable message over the weekend, writing, “I was a busboy at a Chinese restaurant as a teenager. You never forget that. The heated washer burned my hands. The other workers scoffed at me because they’d gotten used to it years ago. I still tip well to this day.”

I never want anybody to feel belittled and disrespected because of their job, and workers on minimum wage deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. They’re the ones who help customers everyday and don’t deserve to be replaced. #FreedomDividend#HumanityFirst
My mom raised me and my 3 siblings on a minimum wage income plus the tips she rarely got to keep. To this day I tip at least 50% on occasion that I see the waitress/waiter who is struggling in life I tip double, you can see the pain in people’s eyes. Keep being you Yang.
My grandson had a job at a friends restaurant this summer he hoped to do some cooking but he mostly bussed tables and washed dishes I asked if that made him want more or less to go to culinary school and he said “more – everyone has to start at the bottom, Nana“
Thanks for sharing your humble beginnings. Restaurant work is definitely tuff, and being that it’s an immigrant run restaurant can be even more difficult. This is exactly why you would make a great leader. Hard work and optimism 👍 #yanggang#yang2020
