Uncle Bloomberg Wants YOU

Mayor seeks campaign workers. Yiddish preferred.

Bloomberg for Mayor(Bloomberg talks to a prized constituent)

In his quest to secure a third term as mayor of New York City, Michael Bloomberg has apparently decided that he requires more than his Jewish background to woo the city’s not-insignificant bloc of Yiddish- and Hebrew-speaking voters. To that end, and perhaps also to do his small part to fight the recession, Bloomberg is hiring staffers to work the field in Brooklyn and Queens. For the job, which pays by the hour, Yiddish or Hebrew is preferred; you ought to be “well-spoken, persuasive, confident, and hardworking”; and you’re ideally available to work “afternoons and evenings (excluding Fridays and Saturdays) through November 3rd.” It’s good to know that even for hard-working politickers, Shabbat can still be a day of rest.
