I can confirm that it is no idle speculation in our community that meal work has become more popular over time as we just completed our thrice-yearly work survey (which asks members to express a preference for the various jobs available to do in our community) and the most desired jobs in order of "weighted" preference (average preference - on a scale from -2 to +2 - times the number of people expressing a positive preference for the job) are: 42 - meal cleaner once a month 27 - weekday meal assistant cook 26 - light duty snow shoveller 24 - sunday meal assistant cook 23 - meal cleaner two times a month 23 - Common House sitting and guest room cleaner 18 - Common House laundry room cleaner 17 - meals billing person 16 - weekday meal head cook ... 11 - sunday meal head cook ... the only meals jobs that rank in the top twenty of least desired jobs are weekday head cook three times a month and sunday head cook three times a month. For this upcoming work season, which will be from January through the end of April, 2007, there are 88 different jobs to choose from representing a total of 468 hours per month. We have 60 adult members who participate in the work. Please let me know if you want more detail... Thanks, Adi
