    AOC fined for not providing Worker's Comp to her campaign employees

    The campaign of rookie U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., has been fined by the state for not providing workers’ compensation coverage for a month last year.

    The failure to provide the coverage to campaign staff is particularly awkward for Ocasio-Cortez, the Democratic socialist who rose to stardom after unseating top Democratic Rep. Joe Crowley with a campaign theme of improving conditions for the working class.


    “The employer did not have the required workers’ compensation coverage from March 31, 2018, to April 30, 2018, and was issued a final penalty of $1,500, which was paid,” state Workers Compensation Board spokeswoman Melissa Stewart told the New York Daily News.

    “This coverage is vital to ensuring workers are protected for on-the-job injuries,” she added.


    This isn’t the first time the congresswoman’s pro-working class credentials have been called into question.

    She remains under scrutiny after avoiding answering questions on whether she will follow through with her own advice to fellow lawmakers to “have some integrity” and forgo their paychecks during the partial government shutdown.

    It was only a month that was missed. But to me is the point is that this idiots can't even manage to follow rules that have been in place for years. And they won't to come up with a bunch of new ones. Yeah, that will work!

    The period with no coverage was one month. Unless she had a huge staff $1500 is probably proportionate to the violation.

    My guess is that this is an example of O-C's ignorance of real life stuff about which she will be voting to regulate.

    Wait.....I thought all you have to do is pay for it.....concerning health care. Worker's Comp is a form of health care. Emergency type health care. What the HELL? Does she not care for her employees?

    She's just 28 or 29, so the relevant laws were probably passed and implemented well before she was born (before her parents were born?).

    No, but it's a decent measure of the magnitude of her ignorance.

    She cares about the little guy, until she has to pay for it.
