— -- Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., isn't giving up his day job, but he did take a stab Saturday as a Southwest Airlines baggage handler and Starbucks barista as part of the #InYourShoes initiative.
Working with Transport Workers Union of America members at Oakland International Airport, Swalwell loaded baggage onto the airline's Boeing 737s.
The social media-savvy congressman tweeted several photos of his baggage handling stint.
Later in the day, Swalwell ditched the fluorescent safety vest and noise reduction earmuffs and headed to a Starbucks in Dublin, Calif., where he took part in "some barista basic training," according to a tweet.
