The wife of Maine's governor has taken a summertime job as a waitress at a dockside restaurant catering to tourists to supplement the couple's income.

(美國)緬因州州長夫人在一家位於碼頭畔的餐廳打暑期工,當女侍接待遊客,以貼補夫妻倆的收入。

The Maine governor's salary is the lowest in the United States at $70,000 a year and Maine first lady Ann LePage said she is working at a seafood restaurant in Boothbay Harbor to put aside a little cash to buy a car.

緬因州長的年薪7萬美元,全美最低,緬因州第一夫人安.拉裴吉說,她正在布斯灣港的一家海鮮餐廳工作,好存點現金以便買車。

LePage, 58, who sports a T-shirt, jeans and an apron at work, said customers are often taken aback when they see her at the restaurant.

58歲、工作時身穿T恤、牛仔褲與圍裙的拉裴吉說,顧客看到她在餐廳時經常會嚇一跳。

"She (my daughter) did so well that, my wife, the first lady, is waitressing this summer," he said. (Reuters)
