Why self needs direct deposit:

Got a paycheck in my wallet. That's always a good thing.

In fact.. I have three paychecks in my wallet.

(Sorry, Mr. Employer. Hope your accounting was up-to-date!)

I wonder what kind of late fees I've incurred this time?

You're quite mistaken.
Work needs doing. If there are no volunteers, someone gets paid.

If you're judging motivation, you have to categorize by motivation.
  • Internship
    Work performed with less or no payment, to further one's career.
    Worker: delayed gratification, but ultimately driven by money.
    Employer: taking advantage of their position to recieve discounted labor.

  • Employment
    Work performed for a fee.
    Worker: fulfils immediate material needs.
    Employer: profits more from this labor than what it cost.

  • Volunteer
    Work performed because it needs doing, with no thought towards compensation.
    Worker: emotional gratification is immediate.
    Employer: gets more accomplished than they could alone.
Whether you're in it to make a profit, or just want to contribute back to the community, it's the same time and energy spent.

It's the same work, here or in Star Trek.
