Anyone else heard about public servants being asked to ‘volunteer’ to work at Kevin Rudd’s 2020 Summit in April. Apparently, some departments are asking for volunteer scribes and PR people to work throughout the weekend. Yes, the government that is cutting your budgets now wants you to offer up a weekend to jot down the words of wisdom from the nation’s best and brightest. For free! I mean, who could turn down that sort of offer. I wonder what happens when insufficient numbers are inspired to volunteer for the great event.
