Former White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders sounded off on Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who suggested that American workers orchestrate a national boycott when the economy reopens after the coronavirus, saying she needs to look back to where she came from and remember that she still gets paid as a member of Congress regardless of whether she's doing her job.

“This is the same Congresswoman who just last week was celebrating the devastation of the oil and gas industry and the hundreds of thousands of jobs that are tied to that because she hoped it would provide momentum for her Green New Deal.” Sanders said, “This is also a person who may want to go back to her roots and remember that most Americans, unlike those in Congress have to show up in order to get paid and that they don’t have the luxury of not doing their job and still being able to provide for her family like she does as a member of Congress.”
.@AOC says Americans should boycott work. As usual she’s wrong. The goal should be for Americans to SAFELY return to work because unlike AOC and members of Congress, most of us actually have to show up at work to get paid and support our families! #ProtectLivesProtectLivelihoods— Sarah Huckabee Sanders (@SarahHuckabee) April 23, 2020

“When we have this discussion about going back or re-opening, I think a lot people should just say ‘no’... we’re not going back to that.”
People WANT to go back to work.
