Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says amazon’s salaries of $150,000 a year for 25,000 new jobs in New York City constitute “scraps” and are not “dignified.” Meanwhile, she only pays her own interns $15 an hour.

In November 2018, CNBC reported:

Amazon will pay HQ2 employees an average of $150,000

On February 16, 2019, explaining why she opposed amazon creating 25,000 new jobs in New York City, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said:

“We need to create dignified jobs in New York City”

and

“We do not have to settle for scraps in the greatest city in the world”

I wonder how high those amazon salaries would have to be in order for Ocasio-Cortez to think they were “dignified” and not “scraps.”

Meanwhile, in December 2018, NPR reported:

When Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez takes office next month, representing New York’s 14th District, she will be a part of the “blue wave” of new Democrats in the House. But the 29-year-old may end up being a part of a different kind of wave, too: a bipartisan effort for members of Congress to pay the interns they employ.

“Time to walk the walk,” she tweeted on Tuesday. “Very few members of Congress actually pay their interns. We will be one of them.” And she pledged more than just a stipend: Her interns will make $15 an hour.

In other words, when it comes to paying wages that are “dignified” and not “scraps,” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a hypocrite.

Poll: man who created 7,000 jobs tells his employees what he’ll do if Obama gets reelected and raises taxes

David Siegel is the founder and CEO of Westgate Resorts, a real estate and timeshare company. In a recent letter to his 7,000 employees, he wrote:

Who is really stimulating the economy? Is it the Government that wants to take money from those who have earned it and give it to those who have not, or is it people like me who built a company out of his garage and directly employs over 7,000 people and hosts over 3 million people per year with a great vacation?

I can no longer support a system that penalizes the productive and gives to the unproductive. My motivation to work and to provide jobs will be destroyed, and with it, so will your opportunities. If that happens, you can find me in the Caribbean sitting on the beach, under a palm tree, retired, and with no employees to worry about.

That’s really quite good – I like that. Perhaps he’s read Atlas Shrugged.
