A new movement has been launched to make Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a barmaid again.
Due to her being sent to Washington, she no longer has unfettered access to the tip jar at the Flats Fix taqueria.
If she could get her barmaid job back to supplement her income, perhaps she could then afford the high rent in Seattle.
Red Square reports:
AOC is now one of our betters. We are not worthy.
Ocasio-Cortez, a member of the Democratic Socialists of America, got a big raise with her election to Congress, a job that comes with a $174,000 annual salary. She told the New York Times she was concerned about how she would get an apartment before that salary kicked in.
She ended up moving into a luxury apartment building with a wide array of amenities where rent for even a studio apartment exceeds $2,000 a month. The Washington Free Beacon is not disclosing the exact building Ocasio-Cortez lives in due to safety concerns expressed by her office.
Her office pushed back against the notion that it was hypocritical for Ocasio-Cortez, who has made housing affordability one of her top policy concerns, to move into a luxury building. A spokesman pointed out that her office also uses a car with an “internal combustion engine that runs on fossil fuels,” even though she thinks their use should be eliminated.
