Well now. Everyone’s favorite little socialist, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, didn’t follow the law for a bit. To be fair, it was only for a month. But if you’re going to be the queen of socialists, make sure you toe the socialist line. In this case, compensating your workers.
“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 said. “This coverage is vital to ensuring workers are protected for on-the-job injuries.”
Hey, maybe it was an oversight. Mistakes happen. Perhaps whoever was in charge forgot to file the right paperwork. Stranger things in government have happened. Related Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Puts Being ‘Morally Right’ Over Factual Accuracy.
Whatever the reason, the campaign flubbed it up. Maybe AOC was too busy texting, tweeting, and being generally disconnected from the people working to get her elected into a position of power. It’s the socialist way.
