The joy of doing something. It's what makes volunteers do what they do.

I see your point though, if there were a need for many people to do something that few found pleasurable, meaningful, or joyful. How would you motovate people to weld a starship together in Iowa?

yeah, the "who does the crappy jobs?" argument is kind of a tricky one for utopian socialism. You'd have to either have an extra privilege system(you get something cool for doing them) or you'd have a fair system of rotation worked out where everyone had a turn.
