There, fixed that for you.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will pay every staffer a living wage, ending the longstanding practice of Congressional staffers taking second jobs
Take it from a non-American: it is.
You do realize that she doesn’t set her own salary, right?
If i’m understanding both your comment and Wikipedia’s summary it seems it might be Blanca Guerra.
And just to emphasize: this, like her own salary, is something that she has minimal to no control over.
Edited because how could i forget the commas!?
Paying staff a living wage?! Good Lord! No wonder Job Creators Network want to character assassinate her.
eta: Oddly, the JCN page dropped off of SourceWatch recently. Hopefully it’s being updated and not due to legal bullying.
It’s almost like she’s trying to be the change she wants to see in this world.
There is no evidence that he is on the payroll.
Ocasio-Cortez insisted that he was only given the email account so he could access her calendar.
“Actually this calendar designation is a permission so he can have access to my Google Calendar. Congressional spouses get Gcal access all the time,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote
Asked about the arrangement, David O’Boyle, the spokesperson for the Office of the Chief Administrative Officer, told Fox News: "From time to time, at the request of members, spouses and partners are provided House email accounts for the purposes of viewing the member’s calendar.
Yes, it must! Good for her. That’s like, the 'Merican Dream, right?
(Edited to remove context of reply to post no longer above.)
Why do representatives want cheap, stressed, tired, unfocused, economically insecure, junior coffee-fetchers and gofers? Because that’s all they’ll get at those salaries.
Why don’t they want satisfied, secure, productive staffers able to provide them with the highest quality administrative and political/research support? The fact that someone can categorise them as “coffee fetchers” encapsulates everything that is wrong with the current staff model.
I suspect her congressional colleagues may start to get jealous at the level of support and loyalty and dedication she gets from her staff, and her increased productivity and effectiveness as a result, and start to wonder why they cannot get the same. One day, perhaps, they’ll figure it out. AOC seems to have.
A politician has pledged to pay her employees a living wage… to undermine democracy!
I would point out that, because of her employment background, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez has all the skills needed to fetch her own coffee, which may free up some staff for more urgent tasks, such as outlawing cows and developing aquatic trains.
The brazen hussy doesn’t even have the decency to feel ashamed!
And group houses on Cap Hill! The horror.
Not to mention her applicant pool is going to be the best of the best to start with.
Are we here to wringe nepotism from the US political system ?
What the fuck is Ivanka doing anywhere near anything ? How is she at a seat of power by making handbags ?
