JOBS TO PROTECT OUR DRINKING WATER ($10-15/HR)
Massachusetts has some of the best and cleanest drinking water in the
country. This is in a large part because we have protected over 50,000
acres of land surrounding the Quabbin Reservoir, which provides over 2
million people with drinking water.
Unfortunately, over the past few years logging around the Quabbin
reservoir has put our drinking water at risk. The forest that surrounds
the Quabbin acts as a natural filtration device, keeping oil and other
pollutants out of the reservoir.
Last year, we won a temporary ban on logging around the Quabbin, but that
is set to expire. In order to convince Governor Patrick to permanently
protect the Quabbin Reservoir, we need to show Governor Patrick that the
people of Massachusetts want to protect our drinking water and the
So we¹re hiring people to get out into neighborhoods and build the public
support it will take to protect our drinking water and the Quabbin!
We have both part-time and full-time positions available. The average
salary comes to between $10-15/HR, and we can be fairly flexible with
students schedules. Those interested can call our office at
617-292-4810, or apply online at www.jobsthatmatter.org.
Feel free to get in touch with any questions that arise.
