Putting the Occupy Wall Street Protestors to work

Ethel C. Fenig

The far left, somewhat mysteriously funded Working Families Party (WFP)  "a group that shares the same address as the SEIU and ACORN in New York," patriotically doing its best to fight unemployment and create jobs, is now hiring.  To plump up the mostly young white illegal occupiers, the organization has placed a Help Wanted ad on Craig's List.

If you need a job here are the requirements.  If you want the job, don't tell them I sent you.  

 

 FIGHT TO HOLD WALLSTREET ACCOUNTABLE NOW! MAKE A DIFFERENCE GET PAID!

You must be an energetic communicator, with a passion for social and economic justice.

Only outgoing, articulate dedicated, determined candidates will be considered for the positions.

And if you meet these standards--plus others they won't admit

 

WFP offers substantial paid-training provided by senior leadership, on varied issues such as: advocacy, public speaking, mobilizing, fundraising, networking and organizing. We invest in passionate people with excellent communication skills and a full benefits package is offered to those candidates that qualify. In addition, there is opportunity for advancement and travel to our satellite chapters and out of state affiliates.

This is not a policy job! Through direct action you will be shaping NY state politics for the next 20 years.

However the most telling--and not too surprising--revelation of the job, from an organization that proudly proclaims they are

Leading the fight and helping to frame the debate. The WFP has a proud record of fighting for issues that matter and has been instrumental in implementing key pieces of legislation such as Raising New York's Minimum Wage, Enacting Living Wage Laws, the Working Family Party is not paying their new hires a minimum wage, a living wage, for New York working families. 

Compensation: $350-$650 A Week Depending On Responsibility & Length Of Time On Staff

The cost of living is very high in tax burdened New York; even the maximum $650 a week offered to the longest enduring staffer with the most responsibility is essentially a poverty level salary for a family of four there.  As for the entry level wage, the newly employed peon should have the Working Family Party sue the Working Family Party for not obeying the laws for minimum, living, fair wages implemented by the Working Family Party. 

But then, you didn't expect the WFP to practice what they preached did you?

Blame it on the rich Wall Streeters!  They should pay!
