    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's campaign fined by New York for not having workers' compensation coverage for a month - CNNPolitics

    Washington (CNN)Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's campaign was fined by the state of New York for not having required workers' compensation for a month last year, according to the New York state Workers' Compensation Board.

    "The employer did not have the required workers' compensation coverage from March 31, 2018 to April 30, 2018 and was issued a final penalty of $1,500, which was paid," New York state Workers' Compensation Board spokeswoman Melissa Stewart said in a statement provided to CNN.
    Stewart also added that the workers compensation coverage is "vital to ensuring workers are protected for on-the-job injuries."

    So you can fail to cover your employees for a month and you only get a $1500 fine? I wonder if that is what happens to non-communists?

    Hell, I've seen people prosecuted for less.

    She can’t comply with the easiest of rules and concepts. How the hell does she think others who are of lesser mental capability than her (in her mind) be able to handle the regs she’s proposing?

      That’s a feature, not a bug.

        It's easier to make the rules than follow them, especially when you exempt yourself, as Congress so often does.

          Well, for non socialists it looks like:

          Penalties for noncompliance include:
          • A penalty of $2,000 for every 10 days without coverage.
          • Civil and Criminal charges including misdemeanor, Class D and E Felony.
          • Fines ranging from $1,000 to $50,000.
          • The penalty applies for the period of time the employer had employees but had no coverage.

            So, she thinks health care is extremely important for everyone, but didn’t bother to ensure her supporters had workman’s comp???
