Ocasio-Cortez’s Former Employer Just Closed Its Doors Because of a Policy She Supports

This is why we can’t have nice things, like a high minimum wage.

Democratic socialist, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, supports policies such as abolishing ICE, free healthcare, and a $15 minimum wage. 

However, Ocasio-Cortez’s former employer just shut down after not being able to afford to pay their employees such a high wage. The owner, Charles Milite, claims that changes over the years affected his decision.

“The times have changed in our industry,” Milite said in an interview with The Post. “The rents are very high and now the minimum wage is going up and we have a huge number of employees.”

Ocasio-Cortez recently posted a picture with old friends at the business.

The 150 employees of The Coffee Shop are now without a job. However, the Democrat refuses to see the reality of a high minimum wage. 

Raising the minimum wage does nothing but harm the economy and make it harder for those just entering the workforce to qualify for jobs.
