OCASIO-CORTEZ CUTS SENIOR STAFFERS PAY (BUT NOT BOYFRIEND’S)

Posted by Barry Sobel on

Ocasio Cortez wants to pay all her leeches a “living wage” which she claims is basically $52,000 per year. In order to pay this “living wage” to generic staffers, Ocasio-Cortez will have to cut the pay of her senior staffers who make around a six figure income. Her boyfriend, who got a government issued e-mail address and countless other gifts will be exempt from the cuts.

New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will likely need to cut senior staff salaries in order to afford the “living wage” the freshman congresswoman intends to pay every staff member.

Ocasio-Cortez tweeted about her staff’s upcoming pay structure on Friday along with a link to a Roll Call story on the topic.

“Leadership starts with our choices,” she wrote. “That’s why I decided that no one on my staff will make less than $52k/year. 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.”
