    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Working Families full-time

    Pros

    They have all-gender bathrooms. The recruiters, etc, were nice, which unfortunately is not a substitute for giving you an actual, doable, lasting job.

    Cons

    The canvasser job is not real. It is temporary, precarious labor. It is the worst job in the world. It's completely demoralizing. You will literally work there for a few weeks or a month tops because the quota is simply not reachable for a normal human being who doesn't feel comfortable harassing and coercing random people on the street. It is entirely hypocritical for WFP to be a "progressive" organization that uses precarious labor like this. Not to mention, electing more Democrats is not going to fix this broken, broken world, because Democrats are already the ones doing half the work to hold this terrible system in place. Only real grassroots action can make real progressive change, and WFP is not that.
