As attractive as the prospect of spending the day with someone else's stuffy kid might be, IMO the "small income" potential is too trivial in the context given for this to be the best use of a Federal employee's time.

A couple months ago a fiend of mine in FB in another state was looking for a last-minute day babysitter since her child was running a fever and couldn't go to daycare, and she couldn't miss work that day. She was paying $15/hour.

$120 to watch one kid for a day - might be "small income" to you - but might not be bad for someone who has no income at all coming in. And I'm not sure what you mean by "best use of a Federal employee's time" since we're talking about people who aren't currently going to work - so odds are nothing they're doing during the day is bringing in income.
