Dems seek paid grassroots workers. And they say we’re Astroturf?

This is an ad currently running on Craig's list.

Field Positions - Tennessee Democratic Party (Nashville, TN)

The Tennessee Democratic Party is currently looking for enthusiastic, politically interested individuals for our grassroots field program.

Waiting for 2012 to roll around isn't going to work. If we're going to see gains in the 2012 election, we need to get busy! We need to ramp our organizing and outreach efforts. We need to challenge more Democrats in Tennessee to take an active roll in their Democratic organizations. We need to boost voter participation. This is why we are working to hire a new team of field staff as soon as possible.

We are currently looking to fill full-time and part-time field canvass and field manager staff positions. Advanced leadership opportunities will be available to individuals showing dedication, inspiration, and responsibility. You'll build rapport with targeted voters, sharpen your communication skills, and inspire Democrats in Tennessee. Working directly for the Tennessee Democratic Party provides an opportunity to get familiarized with state politics and get exposed to many facets of election work within a state party. Pay varies depending upon responsibilities, performance, and schedules, but typically staff will earn somewhere between $325 and $625 per week.
