Multnomah County Library is seeking applicants for Bilingual Spanish Youth Librarian positions.
Notice that it's plural. They are hiring for multiple positions.
Assess the needs of children and teens in the assigned community, with an emphasis on Latino families
Plan and implement programs and training sessions of interest to young adults, children and families in the library and the community, with a particular focus on Latino community and bilingual programs and services
Well you can count me as a definite YES vote on that regional tax because you know that I support government being good stewards of our tax money by hiring library staff to cater to one racial demographic. Oh wait, no I don't.
If Multnomah County can afford to hire multiple "Latino librarians" then they can afford to hire some teachers... who will probably just be teaching the kids of illegal aliens. Man, I can't avoid this issue even if I try. It's all-encompassing.
Need another good reason to support another tax? Check out the skimpy benefits package that these poor, underpaid public "servants" have to suffer with:
Retirement: County employees are included in the Oregon Public Employees' Retirement System (PERS/OPSRP). The County pays both the employer and the employee's share of the retirement contribution (six percent of wages).
Life Insurance: The County provides life insurance at no cost to employees under a term life insurance policy.
Bus Pass Program: The County provides a bus pass to all regular employees.
Health Care (Medical, Vision and Dental): Four medical/vision options and two dental options are offered to employees. Coverage is included for the employee and immediate family, i.e. spouse or domestic partner and eligible dependent children. The County pays most of the cost of health care premiums, with employees paying a small share.
I would say that Multnomah County is being generous with their benefits but that would be a lie... it's not generosity when you are giving away other people's money!
