    Arrow Job Working

    "He got a job working with the disabled."

    The sentence "sounds" right to me, but when I tried to analyze it, it does not seem right. "Working with the disabled" modifies "a job", they expand to "a job that is working with the disabled" But "a job" cannot "work"; only a worker works. Would adding "of" between "job" and "working" solve the problem?

    The sentence sounds right to me.
    I would say that "working with the disabled" is a participial phrase describing "job".
