The jobs are with the Working Families Party.
What is the Working Families Party? WFP is a New York-based, left leaning political party that had strong ties to ACORN and also receives substantial financial support from large unions like SEIU. The New York Times describes them this way;
The Working Families Party was formed in 1998 by a coalition of labor unions and community groups as a way of prodding Democratic candidates to pay more attention to the organizations’ needs.
And the WFP is also hiring people to work at the protests on Wall Street.
