Job Vacancy for Paid "Grassroots" Health Care Reform Activists

This is just hilarious. And Congress wants to call the Tea Party movements "astroturf." At the very least conservatives haven't had to pay people to promote their cause. Check out this job posting on the San Francisco area craigslist. (NOTE: It's now been removed, but is available at Free Republic). I believe this represents the desperation that the progressives are feeling to pass the health care reform bill. Can we say, "power grab"? I knew you could!
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—or call Chris at 415-622-0064

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.
Let's all call Chris (415.622.0064) and find out why a "grassroots" movement has to pay people to participate.
