Default ... a living wage?


Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is at it again. It's gonna be fun watching her
continue her education as a Congresswoman in WashDC.

She's now demanding a "living wage" for interns who work in Congress.
Wants a minimum of $15 per hour.

Not sure where she gets these ideas. An "intern" is traditionally a
minimally paid but mostly unpaid person who serves as part of their
continuing education. Their internship is not a career.

It's up to each individual member of Congress to decide what they
want to pay staffers (or not pay them at all). Funny thing is that
about twice as many Republican House members compensate their interns
and staffers than do Democrat House members.

No surprise there. The Dems like to spend other people's money.
