The failure to provide the coverage to campaign staff is particularly awkward for Ocasio-Cortez, the Democratic socialist who rose to stardom after unseating top Democratic Rep. Joe Crowley with a campaign theme of improving conditions for the working class.“The employer did not have the required workers’ compensation coverage from March 31, 2018, to April 30, 2018, and was issued a final penalty of $1,500, which was paid,” state Workers Compensation Board spokeswomanMelissa Stewart told the New York Daily News.“This coverage is vital to ensuring workers are protected for on-the-job injuries,” she added.
Alexandria is a complete hypocrite.
Just like all the other socialists, it's "do as I say, not as I do," but she doesn't care about workers rights. She just wanted to get elected. And she got her wish.
In the wake of this news, Ocasio-Cortez would like to remind everyone that they're just too concerned with facts.
