Why do people think she's representative of the working class anyway? Is it purely because she had one bartending job at some point?

Maybe this is the Brit part of me, but simply having a job doesn't make you working class, ffs.
She would have been better off just telling the truth about her middle class family. She didn't have everything she wanted, but the brat got most of it. She spins that into a hardscrabble life on the block when the bitch is from Sesame Street

She's not representative of the working class, the real working class. She is however 100% representative of the class of worthless college degree and moving from that into a job in the service industry/NEET/E-beggar class that likes to think that they are what Marx was talking about. The real American working class, the plumbers, the truckers, the loggers, the oil workers, the farmers, all solid Red, because all the blue collar know that mass illegal immigration fucks us hard. Try working a job with illegal immigrants. You fucking cant, not easily, because you know that "American jobs for Americans" mentality? Illegals have that same idea, that they are promised the construction jobs, the landscaping jobs, the gardening, and a white person coming in is stealing their work. So they are hostile and tense, trying to get you out, they will shit talk you to employers and turn around to you and pretend not to speak english if you are trying to work with them. If you support mass illegal immigration, you cannot also support blue collar American workers.

"Working class" is a weird phrase. Wouldn't that be basically everyone except Trust Fund kids, career charity cases, and college professors?
I prefer blue collar vs white collar. Working class is just something given so college kids working at starbucks can feel like Marx is smiling at them.

Go look at what movieblob thinks about the working class; per him it's a thinly spread dying minority between New York and LA, who deserve to be rounded up and put in extermination camps.

But yes the vast majority of America, whether democrats, republicans, anarchists, communists, libertarians, whatever flavor, are working class. We don't live in the Glorious Moon Future of post-want.

A $15 an hour minimum wage would raise the inflation rate, especially if tied to inflation.
The big thing is the cost of housing sucking up all that money. Fifteen an hour is constantly touted as the solution to rising housing costs, but all it will do is make the problem worse. Among the truly poor, you’ll also see the same parasites that already prey on them finding new ways to scam them out of their income. This is why I’m also opposed to a universal basic income.

AoC should know that, since she goes on and on about her Econ degree.
This is the biggest mystery to me, how someone can have an econ degree and get so, much, basic, stuff, WRONG. And wrong by a country mile...

- accounting errors represent actual money
- hiking the minimum wage will permanently increase the wealth of the middle class
- plans that cost more than the sum total of the world's wealth RIGHT NOW can still be implemented by taxing "The tippy tops"

Did she attend a single class she didn't sleep through?

She probably has a BA in econ meaning her only required hard courses were a basic math course and 100 level micro/macro with the rest being nonsense liberal arts electives.

To me, the working class are the people who are tasked with building an maintaining the foundations of society. So, a primary school teacher may be white collar, however they are working class, impo, because they are necessary for maintaining a functional citizenry, (unlike secondary education, which is just as optional as a whiskey sour or a coffee milkshake.)
