Hello! What does 'plumb job' mean? Thank you!These conflicting conclusions -- and the conflicting interests that fund them -- make the repressed World Bank report all the more important. The World Bank is hardly a neutral institution; Bush himself appointed the bank's current director, Robert Zoelick, last year. Zoelick has been bouncing between high-level posts in Republican administrations and the private sector since the 1980s. To claim the World Bank position, he left a plumb job at Goldman Sachs -- which he gained after five years of high-level posts in the Bush administration.
Hi Riverkid & Stuartnz, thank you for your help. I see.
Sorry, there's something wrong with my computer so I can not click " thank" bottom to you two though I have tried.
Plumb and plum have totally different meanings though. Was it a typo error?"Plumb job" here seems to be an alternate spelling of "plum job",
Or could it be a plump job,a job with a fat salary?
