If you were concerned that work ethic and self-reliance are disappearing in America, meet Jhaqueil Reagan. The unemployed Indiana man, who's been caring for his siblings since their mom died two years ago, was walking 10 miles in the snow for a job interview on Friday for a minimum wage thrift-store position. He stopped at a Cajun diner to ask for directions where owner Art Bouvier tried to convince him to take the bus, but he explained he had no bus fare. Later, Bouvier spotted the young man still trudging through the snow and offered him a lift. Inspired by Reagan's work ethic, he then offered him a job at his restaurant. "You hear too many stories about people that want work, but it's got to be the right work...here's a kid who knows there's work available, and it's hard to get, and it's hard to do, but he'll do it," Bouvier said.
