Recently sworn-in Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called for a $15 minimum wage at a New York City airport Monday; bizarrely complaining about the price of a croissant while seemingly unaware the minimum wage at the transportation hub is actually $19 an hour.

“Croissants at LaGuardia are going for SEVEN DOLLARS A PIECE,” she tweeted. “Yet some people think getting a whole hour of personal, dedicated human labor for $15 is too expensive??”

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??

The Congresswoman is apparently unaware the minimum wage for New York airport workers was raised to $19 in September 2018.

High airport concession fees contribute most to the high product cost.

This woman supposedly got an economics degree.

Next thing she will be complaining that movie theaters charge $10 for popcorn!

Boston University.
It would be stupid to fail anyone who pays $60K/year tuition, no?
