    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) complained about the price of goods in an airport with among the highest wage prices in the country Monday. She claimed wages should be even higher, and prices somehow lower.

    The self-described democratic socialist took to Twitter Monday to complain about the price in comparison to wages. She exclaimed that "Croissants at LaGuardia are going for SEVEN DOLLARS A PIECE."

    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??

    She marveled that some would think it's "too expensive" to raise the minimum wage.

    In reality, LaGuardia Airport in New York already has a $15 minimum wage. Andrew Kerr of the Daily Caller pointed out that LaGuardia has a higher minimum rate than the target number of most progressives. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey approved a $19 minimum wage for many LaGuardia workers in September 2018. According to the New York Times, it is "the highest minimum wage target set by any public agency in the country."

    People with low job skills who are earning minimum wage cant have champagne tastes.

    At least that's how it was before these socialists showed up screaming for wage equity.
