A co-worker sent this ad to me today and I thought I would pass it along. Pissed me right off this morning. Wonder where the money is coming from for this crap?

http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sfc/gov/1272054051.html


Here's the script of the page:

Why is now the time to work for change?
Because we have a new president and new hope for a better America.

Because we need change like never before, on everything from the economy to climate change and more.

And because we know that the challenges we face, from ending our dependence on oil to winning the battle for equal rights, are huge—and the politicians and powerful interests who stupidly and stubbornly resist change aren’t calling it quits anytime soon.

America’s leading advocacy groups are gearing up to meet these challenges this summer. In order to win, they need citizen support and grassroots action. That’s where we come in.

At the Fund for the Public Interest, we’ve been organizing campaigns to protect the environment, stand up for the public interest, and defend human rights for more than 25 years. We've helped cut global warming pollution with Environment America. And working with the Human Rights Campaign, we helped organize the grassroots opposition needed to defeat the discriminatory Federal Marriage Amendment.

Your chance to make change happen.
We need people like you—lots of people like you—to go out in communities around the country this summer and help make change happen. And you can earn money doing it. Earn $4,000-$6,000 this summer.

To apply for a job this summer, visit our website—www.JobsThatMatter.org—

Compensation: $11-16 an hour
This is at a non-profit organization.
Principals only. Recruiters, please don't contact this job poster.
Phone calls about this job are ok.
Please do not contact job poster about other services, products or commercial interests.

Irony is when you're employed to go promote universal healthcare, come down with a sudden case of broken-nose-from-being-punched-in-the-face syndrome, and your job doesn't qualify for medical benefits.

I went to the website the ad is linked to and there's a list of the states where they want people.



It just pisses me off that OUR money is going to fund these idiots holding signs and crying to health care.

Good - they know to stay the fuck out of my state.

Someone should cross-reference the states they'll be campaigning in with the states that are "right to work" and see if there's an interesting finding.

Not me though, I'm going to lunch!

States that voted FOR Obama are supposedly getting more than those that did not. This is surely the most cynical and political way to make a point.
