Ocasio-Cortez Campaign Fined for Shorting Staffers on Worker's Comp Coverage

As reported by The New York Daily News on Thursday, Ocasio-Cortez's campaign has been hit with a New York state fine for failing to carry workers' compensation coverage.

"This coverage is vital to ensuring workers are protected for on-the-job injuries", she explained.

The report described lawmakers as fearful of Ocasio-Cortez's ability to swing progressives against more establishment Democrats and anxious to utilize her influence to unite the party.

The New York democratic socialist would be a thorn in the side of Wall Street, which has seen its regulatory burden lowered since Donald Trump became president, Politico reported. "This is basic stuff, especially if you hold yourself out to be the champion of workers".

Meanwhile, Jessica Proud, spokeswoman for the New York State GOP, said: "Hypocrisy at its finest".

Every employer is required to cover the cost of compensation coverage, and can easily do so by deducting up to 60 cents per week from each worker's paycheck.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez remains the undefeated queen of social media - this time, clapping back at former senator Joe Lieberman.

"Ocasio-Cortez's desired "living wage" of $15 an hour has been a living hell for many small business owners in NY, who've been unable to offset the cost through higher prices", Employment Policies Institute Managing Director Michael Saltsman said in response to the closure. Last month, she announced that she would pay her congressional interns at least $15 per hour.

Ocasio-Cortez also could be an important ally for committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters. "Very few members of Congress actually pay their interns". One of them, her new chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti, told supporters during a November conference call that "we gotta primary folks".

"I don't know enough about her to be able to determine if she's going to be a good member or what", said Rep. But after the story published, she responding to the report on Twitter Friday, writing, "To quote Alan Moore: 'None of you understand".
