Hi, everybody.

David Andrews posted the following on the Jobs For The Blind mailing
list.  It sounds really intriguing and, provided the transportation
issues could work out, might be a great job for someone who has
organized a lot in the blindness or disability rights movement.  The
hiring org's Website is https://www.1199seiu.org/.

Definitely a job for someone with passion, which would take you to
Ohio, Kentucky, and West Virginia--thus, not terribly far away from
us.  The job is said to involve "some" travel, but might not involve
constant 24×7 travel.  I think the right blind person could rock in
this job.

I have attempted to correct some strange, special characters that
appeared in the original text, meant to be bullet points, which are
quite confusing if you're using a screen reader.  I've also have
inserted line breaks where they were meant to be and have put in what
I believe to be the correct e-mail for job applicants.  That address
also did not transfer well into the e-mailed job announcement.  I've
just done such editing so this announcement is more legible to us .
