Sharing with Friends: Day 1- "The earth will poop on you, Dad."

I believe the same concept holds true in society. When a…

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
