AOC Pats Self On The Back For Authorizing ‘Living Wage’ For Staff, Instantly Gets Leveled

Democrat Socialist Representative, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, is the center of attention once again as she made a special announcement about her staff’s pay.

Cortez said she is restructuring her office to ensure that no one on her staff will make less than $52,000.

With an article attached, Cortez said in a tweet, “Leadership starts with our choices. That’s why I decided that no one on my staff will make less than $52k/year.

She added, “It’s likely one of the highest entry-level salaries on the Hill. We pinch pennies elsewhere, but it’s worth every dime to pay a living wage.”

So what’s the catch? Because there is only so much money allocated per member of Congress for their staff, top level positions in her office will have to take a pay cut to ensure bottom level make a minimum of $52,000.

Aside from that, it’s ultimately U.S. taxpayer money that is being redistributed among Ocasio-Cortez’s staff, not her own. So, as much as she wanted to make a socialist economic statement with this move, it has no bearing on the struggles that day to day business owners face when deciding how to pay their staff. This was all kept in mind as her opposition sounded off on the matter. See Below

Political commentator, Mark Dice, was one of the firsts to respond to Ocasio Cortez and pretty much said she knows “nothing about business.” Here is his response:
