Ocasio-Cortez Claim About Pentagon Wrong — WashPost

If you find yourself on the subway with countless Santas don't worry. It's normal

Of course, the cause of Venezuela's collapse is more nuanced than just "because socialism", but one key point Junior seems to miss here is what agenda, exactly, Ocasio-Cortez and her peers are backing.

The message may have pressured Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer to announce on Monday that he'll pay his interns a stipend in the new congress.

The nonprofit group Pay Our Interns released a in 2017 that found that 51 percent of Senate Republicans paid their interns compared to 31 percent of Senate Democrats.

As Business Insider notes, Ocasio-Cortez and Ayanna Pressley, who won a House seat in MA, were critical of an orientation held at the Harvard Kennedy School.

Ocasio-Cortez, during an appearance on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert", fired back at Trump over his tweet, saying that she doesn't "think he knows how to deal with a girl from the Bronx". The top image of the dual-paneled meme features Ocasio-Cortez with the caption: "Why are you so afraid of a socialist economy?" If she pays her interns 15 an hour, she'll make it around two-and-a-half months before she's out of money.

'This is a disgrace': Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slams her future colleagues in Congress for employing unpaid interns and failing to pay staffers a 'living wage'

Ocasio-Cortez responded to the statistic and promised to pay her interns.

A study a year ago by Pay Our Interns found that 51 percent of Republican senators offer paid internships, compared with 31 percent of Democrats.

Congress, until recently, has historically provided unpaid internships in all but a few roles on Capitol Hill.

From 2019, both the Senate and the House will have funds to pay interns.

Ocasio-Cortez acknowledged the new fund, noting that it will give $20,000 per member of Congress for their interns. After her election win in November, she disclosed to the New York Times that she was unable to afford an apartment in Washington until she started receiving her own congressional salary, calling the situation one of the "many little ways in which our electoral system isn't even designed (nor prepared) for working-class people to lead".
