GENIUS! Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Complains About $7 Croissants at NY Airport – Then Proposes Minimum Wage Increase to $15/Hour
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — the chattering Communist parrot who just doesn’t know when to shut up.
Ocasio-Cortez’s latest tweet was full of so much stupidity, it left us wondering if she posted it to troll as an April Fool’s joke.
Monday morning, Ocasio-Cortez fired off a tweet complaining about $7.00 croissants being sold at New York’s LaGuardia Airport while simultaneously fighting to raise minimum wage to $15.00/hour.
“Croissants at LaGuardia are going for SEVEN DOLLARS A PIECE — Yet some people think getting a whole hour of personal, dedicated human labor for $15 is too expensive??” AOC said in a tweet.
After massive trolling and backlash, AOC backpedaled with a follow up tweet, “GOP taking every tweet so earnestly, making my point for me. It’s not an argument against the price of a croissant – it’s about the value of human worth. But I guess the idea is foreign to them since their policies treat people as disposable anyway.”

But I guess that idea is foreign to them since their policies treat people as disposable anyway 🤷🏽♀️

Here’s the kicker — Top minimum wage of $19.00/hour was just approved for New York airport workers.
…As many as 40,000 airport workers who are now on a path to earning at least $19 an hour, the highest minimum wage target set by any public agency in the country. The pay increase, which was approved unanimously by the commissioners of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, will raise the wages of tens of thousands of workers over the next five years, reported the New York Times in September of last year.
AOC got savaged on Twitter for her stupidity.

They’ll be $30.00 a piece if you raise minimum wage to $15 you economic genius.

Thanks for making us double check to see if this is really you or the parody account which is much funnier.

Wage controls destroy jobs. And cause croissants in NY airports to be overpriced. https://t.co/smxV5VLlON
