Goya Foods CEO Bob Unanue said his company named Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) its employee of the month after an increase in sales following the New York Democrat’s call for a boycott of his firm.
“She was actually our employee of the month,” Unanue said on Monday’s edition of the Michael Berry Show. “I don’t know if you know about this, because when she boycotted us our sales actually increased 1000 percent, so we gave her an honorary — we never were able to hand it to her — but she got employee of the month for bringing attention to Goya and our adobo.”
Unanue added, “Actually, our adobo sales did very well after she said make your own adobo. … She’s our hero. She helped boost sales tremendously.”
After Unanue praised President Donald Trump’s leadership, Ocasio-Cortez joined other Democrats and celebrity leftists in calling for a boycott of Goya products.
