'This is a disgrace': Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slams her future colleagues in Congress for employing unpaid interns and failing to pay staffers a 'living wage'

US Representative-elect Alexandria Ocasio Cortez walks up to participate in drawing a lottery number for her new office on Capitol Hill

"There are many little ways in which our electoral system isn't even designed (nor prepared) for working-class people to lead", Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. "We will be one of them".

"This week I went to dive spot in DC for some late night food".

Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been an advocate of raising the minimum wage nationwide. Those figures dropped dramatically in the House, where only 8 percent of Republicans and 3.6 percent of Democrats compensated their interns. I chatted up the staff.

Ocasio-Cortez's message came after her chief of staff a Washington Post reporter on Tuesday that Ocasio-Cortez will pay her interns a minimum of $15 an hour. "This is a disgrace".

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a newly elected US House representative, called out her future colleagues in Congress for paying their low-level staffers salaries below the "living wage" and for employing unpaid interns.




On Monday, Ocasio-Cortez, who became the youngest woman elected to Congress in last month's midterms, tweeted about her experience of meeting service staff in a D.C. restaurant who were simultaneously working in government.

While Ocasio-Cortez settles into life on Capitol Hill, Trump Jr.is reportedly awaiting indictment by special counsel Robert Mueller for lying to the FBI in the Russian Federation investigation.

According Pay Our Interns, a nonprofit group, 51 percent of Senate Republicans pay their interns, as opposed to 31 percent of Senate Democrats. And her message may have made an immediate impact, because later on Monday Schumer's office announced the job posting had been made "in error" and his interns will be paid a stipend in the new congress.

From 2019, both the Senate and the House will have funds to pay interns.

Ocasio-Cortez acknowledged the new fund, noting that it will give $20,000 per member of Congress for their interns.
