HUH, AND I THOUGHT Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez WAS FOR THE WORKING PEOPLE?
You just can’t make this stuff up, from the NY Daily News, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign was fined by New York state for failing to carry Workers’ Comp coverage. This from the Democrat socialist who made helping the working class and poor her top priority. Maybe she thought only workers comp were for those at the “tippy-top”.
The campaign for new Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who has made helping the working class and poor her top priority, was fined by the state for not carrying workers’ compensation coverage for a month last year.
“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.”
Ocasio-Cortez, a Democratic Socialist, stunned the political establishment last year when she defeated Rep. Joseph Crowley, a longtime Queens powerbroker, in the Democratic primary. She went on to cruise to election in November.
Her spokesman said she had nothing to add.
One Democratic campaign veteran scoffed that “it’s not a great look” for Ocasio-Cortez that her campaign received a fine for not carrying workers’ compensation coverage.
