DUMB: Socialist and Dem Mouthpiece Ocasio-Cortez Says Walmart-Amazon Employees Make Less Than Minimum Wage – FALSE

Democrat mouthpiece and Socialist darling spouted off against capitalism again on MLK Jr. holiday.

Ocasio-Cartez accused Walmart and Amazon of paying their employees less than minimum wage.

Once again the Socialist freshman does not have the slightest clue what she is talking about.

Walmart‘s entry level pay rate of $11 an hour greatly exceeds the federal minimum wage of $7.25 an hour. In fact, it actually exceeds the minimum wage in all but three states, according to Reuters.

Amazon announced in October it’s raising the minimum wage for all U.S. employees to $15, effective next month. The new minimum wage will benefit more than 250,000 Amazon employees — including part-time and temporary employees — as well as another 100,000 seasonal employees.

Once again Ocasio-Cortez has NO CLUE what she is spouting off about.
