No collective bargaining? No bennies are at all? Who are these enemies of the working man? Apparently this has since been removed, but, this is what passes for "progressive" grass roots activism in Wisconsin these days:

NEEDED: WI Recall Callers (at home)

Reply to: see below 

The Progressive Change Campaign Committee and Democracy for America are looking to hire paid callers for our Wisconsin Recall efforts. Callers will make calls through our virtual phone system and must have reliable access to a phone and computer. We're looking for motivated, trustworthy, passionate people to make persuasion, ID, Get Out The Vote, and any other calls we may need. Call shifts are still being finalized, but we're likely looking at Sunday through Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Again, these days may change, and callers are expected to attend every shift as a condition of employment.

The hours will vary by day, with week day shifts being later in the evening and weekends the early afternoon. It pays $10/hr and starts immediately -- as in this weekend. The position runs through August 9th. Interested parties, please apply at


*Location: at home

*Compensation: $10/hr

*This is a part-time job.

*Principals only. Recruiters, please don't contact this job poster.

Walk to Defeat the Walker Agenda ($10)


Date: 2011-07-14,  9:37AM



Help take back the Senate and stop Scott Walker's attack on working families!


GRS Consulting is looking to immediately hire canvassers to go door to door for the upcoming recall election. Extremists in Wisconsin are cutting funds for education and other critical programs, while making working families pay for corporate tax breaks. It's time to stop these destructive policies by taking back the Senate.


Canvassers will work five-hour shifts, and can work any day during the week including weekends. Salary is $10/hour. Applicants should be friendly, outgoing, detail oriented, and able to quickly walk long distances. This is not a sales or fundraising position.
