If you live in the state of Washington, and you would like to do "work that matters", the State of Washington might have just the right job for you!
The inside joke here is that prior to the passage of Initiative 1183 on 8 November 2011, only the State of Washington could operate liquor stores. As a result, all the employees of the state's liquor store outlets were really employees of the state government. Because of the initiative's passage, the state is being forced by its voters to get out of the liquor business.
But apparently, the State of Washington still feels that its liquor store jobs are doing "work that matters"! (We agree, but we'll still drink to the privatization of liquor sales in Washington!...)
