Courtesy of Varney and Company, the SEIU wants to hire a Political Organizer in Northern Virginia.  That should put it nicely within reach of DC, I suppose.

The ideal candidates must have passion for social justice and movement building, excellent communications skills, ability to work long and irregular hours, and be able to work with people from diverse backgrounds and cultures. Positions are based in Northern Virginia and in Richmond, with regional travel required. The Political Organizer will work as part of a team to empower union members to improve their skills and ability, and to drive the union’s political and legislative efforts. The Political Organizers will report to the Local President and/or designated Political Coordinator, and will work in collaboration with local union staff. SEIU Virginia 512 is committed to providing staff development opportunities and resources, while recognizing that the majority of an organizer’s skill development happens through on-the-job experience.


  • If it was 2013, I’d think they were doing a mercy hire for “former” president Obama.
  • Hey, kids, look!  You CAN get a job living in a tent next to a hippie!
  • Who wants to be a minimum wage rioter?

Feel free to add…

    Ha ha ha! Excellent communication skills = able to spout meaningless slogans repetitively, with a crowd annoyingly repeating after each pause in speech!

    Nope, I don’t qualify for this one. I can’t even take it when my younger son plays copycat.

    “Organizer will work as part of a team to empower union members to improve their skills and ability”
    Like a boss? But bosses hire employees, not vice versa.

      Bosses don’t teach their employees to riot. You need special training for that.
