Ocasio-Cortez mixes drinks to push a minimum wage hike

NEW YORK (AP) — Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was back in her New York district tending bar as part of her push to raise the federal minimum wage — especially for workers who now depend on tips.

Some of them joined invited guests and supporters at a Queens restaurant on Friday to draw attention to the One Fair Wage Act. Ocasio-Cortez is co-sponsoring this bill that would raise the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour.

Friday’s private event in the Jackson Heights neighborhood was a political publicity stunt compared to her bartending job at a Manhattan restaurant before she became the youngest woman to win a congressional seat.

But the Democratic legislator did mix margaritas for about half an hour, using skills she learned during four years earning a living in the food industry.
