Why is Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez so popular with Millennial’s? As foolish and naive as we may see her, there is one thing that she understands that rings true with millions.
There is ONE thing that the left is quite correct about. Many of our publicly traded corporations have become greedy and in spite of the fact that their companies are quite profitable they seek to screw their employees out of proper pay and benefits even if it is to the detriment of their own customers.
We see profitable corporations who deliberately run their employee retirement plans into the ground so they can dump them on the federal retirement insurance backup. These companies are ran by bean counters who never see a customer’s face or feel the hardship faced by their own employees or retirees.
You see shows such as “Undercover Boss” and the CEO is, more often then not, shocked to see how the employees of his own company are treated and how hard they struggle. They simply had no idea.
When you see millennial’s such as Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez talk about socialism, it is not just far left school indoctrination that put here there. Her entire adult life was during a time of economic hardship in the United States. Banks and insurance companies lied to everyone, many employers treated their employees like chattel, keeping employees rotating in and out so they could not eventually earn to much money, and paying employees so low that the employers were showing their own employees how to get on public assistance while having a full time job. There are companies that lobby for open borders so they can fire American workers to hire immigrants, illegal or otherwise, for pittance wages.
I myself have been offered jobs that take years of schooling and experience to get the required skills only to be offered a pittance wage. If this is what “capitalism” means than they want no part of it and who can blame them? Their view is not entirely without merit.
