You know the person you’re covering tweets a lot of silly crap when you’re not sure if their tweet you’re currently covering is real or an April Fools Day thing …
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s tweet about the cost of a croissant at LaGuardia could honestly go either way here.
Croissants at LaGuardia are going for SEVEN DOLLARS A PIECE ?
Yet some people think getting a whole hour of personal, dedicated human labor for $15 is too expensive??

You know what, never mind.
We have given up trying to understand what she’s talking about anymore.

Area woman surprised things are ungodly expensive in the airport. Wait til she buys popcorn & a drink at the movie theater. https://t.co/JF4BQLRen5

Wait, food is more expensive at airports and movie theaters?! LIES! ALL LIES.
Yes, let’s pay the workers more so the croissants cost even more. You think we like prices where they are? We want them lower, not higher. Does this compute with you?

If the croissant costs more to make it will cost more to buy.
For having gone to school for economics we’re doubtful of how much she actually knows on the subject.
You’ve supposedly been exposed to microeconomic theory so I would venture that you have an idea as to why croissants could sell at such an exorbitant price. Some ideas: New York City’s draconian tax codes; the excessive licensing fees to maintain business; or rental fees at LGA. https://t.co/ncWqI2Yx5F

What about the world ending in 12 years?! We’re willing to bet she’ll eat a hamburger next.

Everyone should have their fair share of the croissants, right?
There are good reasons for $15 minimum wage but this is not one.

Your understanding of economics and finance astounds me

And not in a good way.
You don't understand how markets work, do you?

They have some pretty cheap options from Amazon thoughhttps://t.co/cHyG7g9qTL pic.twitter.com/UZll7g00Hg

Well, thank goodness AOC kept Amazon out of NYC, right?
Devil's advocate: I estimate it would take me 3-4 hours to produce a single edible croissant.

It’s almost as if there’s a connection between rising wages and rising prices…

GET OUTTA HERE.
But that would mean if they raised the hourly wage to $15 … OOOOH, we see what they did here.
