I learned that some civil servants have been mobilised for election duty, have to attend briefings, take their own time, money, transport, and don't get anything in return.
Can't claim transport $$, no free parking or claim parking costs, use up your own time and energy to go for these.
Does anyone have any opinions on these? Even for reservist we get paid (peanuts no doubt, but still at least got paid). This is almost like free labour (albeit in the name of patriotism).
Lucky i'm not a civil servant...
