Of course I do.
As do salaried workers in all sorts of corporate fields. Government is not, nor should it be, an exception.
I don’t do it for the taxpayers (I don’t at all appreciate their perception of Feds). I don’t do it because it’s expected (it’s not). And I don’t do it for the compensation (there isn’t any). I do it because I’m internally motivated; I want to be good at what I do.
FYI, I recognize that it’s just an expression, but it’s psychotic to refer to a “work-life” distinction. Dividing part of your life against itself is not healthy.
