Sandy Ocasio-Cortez is fitting right in with her government cronies. Like another community-organizer-turned-politician of recent presidential status, she apparently has little to no business acumen, and like BHO, seems to have a similar disregard for the common man or the laws written to protect workers in their time of need.
More from Breitbart:
“Democrat socialist” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has been fined by the State of New York for failing to carry workers’ compensation insurance for a month during her congressional campaign last year.
The New York Daily News reported Thursday:
“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 spokeswoman Melissa Stewart said. “This coverage is vital to ensuring workers are protected for on-the-job injuries.”
“Hypocrisy at its finest,” said state GOP spokeswoman Jessica Proud. “The so-called champion of workers, when given her own responsibility, is not following the law. It’s unbelievable.”
Ocasio-Cortez has styled herself as a champion of workers’ rights — against greedy employers:
NYCers are upping the ante. Now Amazon workers, INCLUDING Whole Foods employees, are teaming up w/ @RWDSU to unionize + demand better pay and working conditions.
This is what an organized, grassroots effort to improve people’s lives look like.https://t.co/PiMXbj4dwn

Did you know that the airport workers operating heavy machinery for your next flight may not even be paid a living wage?
& that’s why we joined Delta ramp workers at LaGuardia airport this morning, who are fighting to unionize & secure healthcare for all.⬇️ https://t.co/dYjsHMX9Wt

Uber has taken in $12 billion in investment and had revenues of $1.7 billion in Q4 of 2016.
Yet their drivers only take home $3.37 an hour.
Does that sound right to you?
We must update our laws to stand up for workers in an increasingly exploitative tech-based economy. https://t.co/uhEjePLxgK

In recent days, she has been championing the cause of the 800,000 federal workers whose paychecks will be delayed because of the partial government shutdown — though the president has said they will be paid afterwards, and the Senate passed legislation unanimously on Thursday to ensure that.

In the beginning, it seemed as if Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was destined to be the shiny new face of the Democrat party, but now even her more seasoned political allies are beginning to distance themselves as she makes gaffe after gaffe, and she’s only been in office for barely two weeks.
The thing that I find amusing is that in her inexperience she’s exposing the rest of the Democrat party for their disregard for rules and laws that they don’t want to be applied to them. I continue to hope she and other junior members of Congress that can’t seem to keep their mouths shut, end up being the window into the Democrat party for the base to become ex-Democrats.
My book is here! And I personally handed a copy to our President at the White House!!! I hope you enjoy it
