Wed, 12/05/2018 - 15:09

Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has admonished Congress for failing to pay interns and their congressional staffers an decent wage. Ms Ocasio-Cortez—a democratic socialist hailing from New York—tweeted that she visited a dive bar in Washington DC where she met with several bartenders, managers, and servers who were currently working for House or Senate offices, indicating that, as Capitol Hill staffers, they shouldn't’t have to work a side gig to make ends meet.

Claudia Sheinbaum, a 56-year-old scientist and environmentalist, rode to victory in the July 1 elections on the same anti-establishment wave that brought her left-wing ally and former mentor to power, Mexico's new President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador. Another woman previously served as mayor of the capital on an interim basis -- Rosario Robles, from 1999 to 2000 -- but Sheinbaum, who holds a doctorate in physics, is the first woman elected to the post.
