GREEN NEW MEAL: AOC Uses Price of ‘Croissants at LaGuardia’ Airport to Justify $15 Minimum Wage

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.01.19

Just days after bizarrely suggesting Republicans used a Constitutional Amendment to prevent the re-election of Franklin Roosevelt -who died in office in 1945- Rep. Ocasio-Cortez is now using the price of breakfast at a New York City airport to promote a $15 minimum wage.

“Croissants at LaGuardia are going for SEVEN DOLLARS A PIECE,” posted the Democratic-Socialist on social media. “Yet some people think getting a whole hour of personal, dedicated human labor for $15 is too expensive??”

Ocasio-Cortez faced a fierce backlash last week after her ‘Green New Deal’ failed to secure a single “Yes” vote in the US Senate; with virtually all Democrats voting “present” and refusing to publicly endorse the massive federal program.

BERNIE VS BEZOS: Sanders Says Amazon Workers’ ‘RIGHTS’ Go Beyond the ‘Minimum Wage’

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.11.19

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders escalated his war-of-words with Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos Monday; saying the technology giant must “recognize” that “workers’ rights don’t stop at the minimum wage.”

“Amazon must recognize that workers’ rights don’t stop at the minimum wage. Amazon must significantly improve working conditions at its warehouses and respect the constitutional right of its employees to form a union and bargain collectively for a better life,” posted Sanders on social media.

Amazon made national headlines last week when Whole Foods -owned by the media corporation- confirmed they would be reducing workers’ hours after the chain was forced to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour for all employees.

LIBERAL LESSON: Whole Foods Slashes Worker Hours after $15 Minimum Wage Hike

Months after parent-company Amazon conceded to public pressure from Democratic lawmakers and raised their minimum wage to $15 an hour for all employees; Whole Foods has slashed worker hours and other benefits to cope with the increased labor costs.

“Since the wage increase, Whole Food employees have told the Guardian that they have experienced widespread cuts that have reduced schedule shifts across many stores, often negating wage gains for employees,” reports the Guardian.

“The Illinois-based worker explained that once the $15 minimum wage was enacted, part-time employee hours at their store were cut from an average of 30 to 21 hours a week, and full-time employees saw average hours reduced from 37.5 hours to 34.5 hours,” adds the report.

“We just have to work faster to meet the same goals in less time,” said one employee. “My hours went from 30 to 20 a week.”

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders is launching a national campaign to raise the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour across the country; raising serious concerns from employers and small businesses on how to handle the increased costs.
