AOC Joins Striking Workers at Hunts Point Produce Market in the Bronx

HeadlineJan 22, 2021

In New York, Congressmember Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez skipped President Biden’s inauguration celebrations Wednesday evening to join striking workers at the Hunts Point Produce Market in the Bronx. Workers have been on strike since Sunday, demanding better wages. This is Ocasio-Cortez speaking at the picket line outside Hunts Point Market.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: “When you’re standing on this line, you’re not just asking for a dollar. You are asking for transformational change, for your lives and for the lives of every food worker across this country, for kids of food workers across this country, because there’s a lot of things upside down right now in our economy.”
