AOC Trying To Prevent New Jobs Coming Into Her District - The Lid: Empowered by killing the Amazon deal which would have created thousands of jobs and millions of tax dollars in NYC and especially her district Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is fighting to block Total Wines & More, a giant alcohol retail store from opening in her district, specifically, College Point, Queens.
The retailer, Total Wine & More, operates 199 superstores across 23 states and employs approximately 4,000 people. According to its website, it carries 8,000 varieties of wine, 3,000 kinds of spirits, and 2,500 brands of beer. The Queens location will be the first in New York City and will probably bring in consumers (and tax dollars) from a broad area–well unless AOC gets her way.
