Sure, the Occupy Wall Street Movement is Totally Grassroots...

…which must be why the New York-based Working Families Party is hiring and paying for people to do”direct action” on craigslist.

For the past twelve years the WFP has been at the fore front of progressive politics,

The WFP is seeking immediate hires.

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.

For those candidates that qualify 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.

“Direct action” is street protesting, pretty much. They’re paying $350 $650 per week. So I guess the answer to my question last week, is yes.
