‘Job Creators’ Times Square Billboard Hammers Ocasio-Cortez for Killing Tens of Thousands of New Jobs

The folks over at the Job Creators Network (JCN) have put their money where their collective mouths are.

In the wake of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez taking credit for Amazon opening a new office in Manhattan (not her district), brining with the new office a whopping 1,500 new jobs, the JCN have reminded the good people of New York City that AOC cost her own Bronx/Queens district at least 25,000 new jobs.

A Job Creators Network billboard in Times Square is calling out Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) for her “fuzzy math” after the left-wing Democrat took credit for Amazon’s decision to open a new office in Manhattan that will bring 1,500 new jobs to New York City.

“Although the jobs are welcomed, the new development doesn’t undo the harm sparked by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) earlier this year. Her vocal opposition to Amazon HQ2 in Queens led to the loss of 25,000 jobs in the city,” Job Creators Network, one of the country’s largest pro-jobs grassroots organizations, said in a statement.

Maybe the honchos at the JCN are just a bunch of racist, old, white guys for pointing out what a complete and utter failure AOC is… but wait!

Indeed, Ocasio-Cortez helped kill Amazon’s plan last year to build a headquarters in New York City in exchange for an estimated $3 billion in tax breaks and state and city subsidies. The move, according to the company, would have created between 25,000 and 40,000 news jobs.

As it turns out, the JCN’s President and Chief Executive Officer is actually a middle-aged Latino by the name of Alfredo Ortiz. Who, by the way, was born in California to parents of legal immigrants.

Alfredo Ortiz speacing before the American Conservative PAC.

Graduating from Pomona College with a degree in Economics, Ortiz also graduated from the University of Michigan where he earned his MBA.

Unlike Ocasio-Cortez who ended up pulling beers at a Bronx dive bar after she graduated, Ortiz worked as an executive for Georgia-Pacific and Kraft Foods.

He then went on to become the vice president of CSM Bakery Products’ Food Service Division, the same folks that give us Oreo Cookies, Cadbury Chocolate, Philadelphia Cream Cheese, Hershey’s Chocolate, Nutella, just to name a few.
