Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ‏ Verified account @Ocasio2018 Follow Follow @Ocasio2018 More This week I went to dive spot in DC for some late night food. I chatted up the staff. SEVERAL bartenders, managers, & servers *currently worked in Senate + House offices.* This is a disgrace. Congress of ALL places should raise MRAs so we can pay staff an actual DC living wage.

More It is unjust for Congress to budget a living wage for ourselves, yet rely on unpaid interns & underpaid overworked staff just bc Republicans want to make a statement about “fiscal responsibility.” If that’s the case, they can cut down on staff to pay them well. Or raise the MRA.


She's gonna fix it all before she even starts LOL

She's coddling up to the "Days of Whine and Roses" crowd.

The other day she said the $21 Trillion Dollars missing from the Pentagon could have paid for 2/3 of Nationalized Healthcare.

Now she's a conspiracy theorist !!!!!! 😆⚔😆

In her tweet, Cortez isn't asking for a raise for herself. She's expressing her surprise and dismay that so many staffers and interns have to work two jobs, one of them being public service and the other being food and beverage service! She's asking that staffers, and interns, be paid a "living wage".

Only in socialist La La Land would you propose to raise taxes on those barely making a living wage in low cost of living areas in order to pay low level government workers a DC living wage...of $80k+.

Morons...

I haven't t seen this many threads about a politician on ATS ever since Trump decided to run.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez sure knows how to trigger white insecure senior citizens from the south

From the stand point of national security. That is what you call a security risk.

If interns are struggling it's easy for a foreign entity to come in with money and influence them.

Not sure you understand what the MRA actually is....

Since it's not her own salary.

She has a lot to learn about life. Perhaps after her “inauguration” one of the intern’s will explain to her how the US government works, before she starts singing bills. I really can’t believe anyone would vote for her as there representive.

Interns shouldn't be getting paid, that's why they're called interns.

She was talking about a living wage for the staff not her own wage.

But then again she blamed it on the Republicans and their "fiscal responsibility"...

The same standards applied when the dems had power so it must have been ok then.

Yep. Some senior staffers make good money.

A lot of them don't.

And nearly half of staffers are looking for better paying work within a year of starting

Public service is its own reward. If you don't think so then maybe you shouldn't be a public servant. Just saying. It's kind of their thing.

People that want to live comfortably get marketable skills and then offer them to the highest bidder so they can accumulate excess money which is then called: Wealth. /security.

Business is great for making lots of money. Start a business. Can't? Oh well. At least you have a job.

Power and wealth don't mix well. Ask a historian.

Full time staffers aren't interns. Interns are interns.
