NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will return to waiting tables.


The New York Congresswoman will don her waitress apron in support of the federal 'Raise the Wage Act.'

She also wants to abolish the below-minimum wage for the tipped workers in New York State.

The Daily News says AOC will take orders at a restaurant in the Bronx on Friday as part of an event organized by Restaurant Opportunities Centers.

“We’re very grateful for our partnership with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who fully understands the struggles of these workers,” ROC co-founder and president Saru Jayaraman said.

Ocasio-Cortez worked at Flats Fix, a restaurant and bar near Union Square, and frequently referenced that experience during her campaign to unseat 10-term Congressman Joe Crowley.

The exact location has yet to be announced.
