He frequently voted along Republican ideology lines, and post-retirement from the Senate, served as head counsel for the white collar criminal defense and investigations practice at a law firm that did extensive work for Donald Trump and then later failed to mention that as a conflict of interest when necessary.

The campaign of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), a champion of progressive policies and supposed advocate of the working class, has been fined for not carrying workers' compensation coverage during a period of the campaign a year ago.

Ocasio-Cortez, who describes herself as a "democratic socialist" has become the face of a new younger and more "woke" demographic focused on fixing systemic problems in the country.

Stewart says the coverage is "vital to ensuring workers are protected for on-the-job injuries".

Warren and Sen. Cory Booker, among others, have recently endorsed the idea of a "Green New Deal", a call to reimagine an environment-first economy that would phase out fossil fuels. "This is basic stuff, especially if you hold yourself out to be the champion of workers". "It's unbelievable", said state GOP spokeswoman Jessica Proud.

Every employer is required to cover the cost of compensation coverage, and can easily do so by deducting up to 60 cents per week from each worker's paycheck. Last month, she announced that she would pay her congressional interns at least $15 per hour.

Ocasio-Cortez was denied a seat on the influential Ways and Means committee this week despite a public pressure campaign launched by progressive advocacy groups. "Very few members of Congress actually pay their interns". But after the story published, she responding to the report on Twitter Friday, writing, "To quote Alan Moore: 'None of you understand". On Thursday, Lieberman, an Independent, spoke with Fox Business about the future of the Democratic party and his thoughts on the rising political star, who was sworn in last week along with a fresh crop of House Representatives. "Congress of ALL places should raise MRAs so we can pay staff an actual DC living wage".
