Part of the fallout from Harper insider Yaroslav Baran's coup at Canadem, which resulted in the contract for those Ukraine election observers being awarded to a new entity, is that the observers on the ground are enjoying a massive pay cut.

Well, that shouldn't come as a surprise. They are after all constantly referred to as "volunteers".
