Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) returned to her roots as a bartender Friday night to pour drinks in support of tipped workers and a $15-minimum wage.

“I was nervous that I may have lost my touch - still got it! That muscle memory doesn’t quit,” the congresswoman wrote on Twitter.

Ocasio-Cortez worked as a bartender in New York before launching her Democratic congressional bid last year to defeat longtime incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley in the 2018 Democratic primary.

Employers in 43 states are allowed to pay workers below the federal minimum wage if they earn the full minimum wage counting tips.

In the face.... with a cream pie. Think about it carefully, you don't know where the other end has been, or who was there before you.
In a time of universal deceit - telling the truth is a revolutionary act.
