(NewsGlobal.com)- Far-left New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez – who famously forced Amazon to stay out of her district and denied local people thousands of well-paying jobs – was snubbed recently by leaders of Amazon’s first-ever union.
The leaders of the newly-formed Amazon Labor Union made it clear that AOC, who claimed to be championing the rights of workers, doesn’t deserve any credit for the formation of the union even though she campaigns in favor of labor unions.
After voting to organize the new union, which has over 8,300 members, the organization’s leader Christian Smalls said that AOC “doesn’t deserve this moment.”
AOC was meant to be headlining a rally for the workers of Amazon last summer, but last minute announced that she wouldn’t be turning up. Smalls said it was a “slap in the face” to everyone at the union. AOC claims that there was a simple scheduling conflict.
Here’s the thing about this…
It’s great that this union is snubbing one of the most radical legislators in American history – one that regularly peddles falsehoods and conspiracy theories – but it’s not so great that the only reason they’re snubbing her is that she didn’t turn up to a rally.
Did they forget the part about her denying New Yorkers well-paying Amazon jobs?
Did that not happen?
