AOC Calls for Workers to Boycott Jobs

Conservative political commentator Candace Owens got involved in a Twitter argument between former White House press secretary Sarah Sanders and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, accusing the New York congresswoman of hypocrisy in her response to the coronavirus.
“Trump has NO PLAN to get people safely back to work,” Ocasio-Cortez said in response to a Sanders tweet criticizing her comments calling for American workers to boycott their jobs. “GOP Govs like Kemp are sending vulnerable workers to die w/ false claims of safety. Trump also pushed an unproven, dangerous treatment as a ‘cure’ & firing experts who want to vet claims. Last thing you care about is safety.”
“You routinely complain that poverty is the reason that more minorities will die from Covid-19,” Owens responded. “But you advocate for a BOYCOTT of employment, thereby impoverishing millions MORE minorities. You’re an intellectual coward that only responds to white people that criticize you.”
“You’re a racist, radical communist that wants to expand government control and dependency— and you are using the plight of minorities to fulfill your sick and twisted goals,” she added.
Ocasio-Cortez said earlier this week that low-income workers should boycott their jobs to protest economic insecurity when national stay-at-home orders are lifted.
Only in America does “liberation” mean going back to work.@AOC sits down with @anandwrites to talk about why a return to normalcy isn’t enough in a post-coronavirus world. SEAT AT THE TABLE premieres tonight at 10p. #seatatthetable
“When we talk about this idea of reopening society, you know, only in America does the president — when the president tweets about liberation — does he mean go back to work. When we have this discussion about going back or reopening, I think a lot of people should just say ‘no’ — we’re not going back to that,” she said.
“We’re not going back to working 70-hour weeks just so that we could put food on the table and not even feel any sort of semblance of security in our lives.”
