      Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is ghosting her comrades on the frontlines of a labor battle against Amazon. The socialist lawmaker promised organizers she would stand by them at a rally outside a Staten Island warehouse trying to unionize but dropped out at the last minute — and protest leaders revealed to The Post this week that they were so crestfallen they didn’t even bother inviting her to a follow-up rally in December.

     “I figured she would follow her word. It was heartbreaking,” protest organizer Christian Smalls told The Post. “I felt bad for the workers that were excited to see her. “It was like a slap in the face,” he added. about 50 people showed up for the unionization rally outside the JFK8 Amazon fulfillment center in Bloomfield on Aug 11. Activists from the independent Amazon Labor Union said they didn’t even bother inviting the Congresswoman — who infamously defeated Amazon’s proposal in 2019 to open up a 25,000-job world headquarters in Queens — to a Dec. 15 rally outside the same facility. The congresswoman spent the holiday season in sunny Florida with sandals-loving boyfriend Riley Roberts.

     AOC is a coward.
