“Serving, bartending, and helping manage a local business has ranked among the best educational experiences of my life. The fact is, much public policy is all talk until you’ve worked 18-hour days to make ends meet. Doing that, and having the experience of a working person, we begin to truly understand the real-life impact of healthcare policy, labor laws, living wage, and so on. This is how I realized how far D.C. has strayed from everyday Americans." - Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
