According to Richard Johnson, a staff writer for The New York Post’s PageSix.com, “One waitress has a bad memory of working with Ocasio-Cortez as (she) tended bar during the very busy Cinco de Mayo celebration in 2017.
“At the end of the night, when it came time to split the $560 in tips she had gotten at the bar, Ocasio-Cortez gave the waitress only $50. After the waitress complained to her manager, her take was doubled to $100, a source said.”
Johnson quotes the waitress as saying, “It says so much about her character. from that point on, I wouldn’t talk to her. I couldn’t look at her.”
If the story this waitress tells is true, it suggests Ocasio-Cortez supports a brand of socialism that mirrors that of Sanders. True socialism would dictate that all of the tip money from that night’s haul at the bar be divided equally, with no consideration given to who worked harder than anyone else.
Sanders, who has turned his promotion of socialism into a $1 million-a-year endeavor, is all for equal distribution of other people’s money, as long as he gets to keep as much of his as possible.
