I am reasonably confident the first complaints about government workers were ingraved on clay tabletst delivered to Hamurabi. It seems the irrigation ditch diggers were spending too much time leaning on their shovels and the stone cutters had taken forever to erect the law codes, which were way too intrusive due to the excessive regulatory zeal of the early family services division in Babylon. I recall some mention in the history books of pits and hungry lions. Seems to have cleared up the complaints.
