When a Recruit Card is Played, the Rules state that this is a Free Action and may be done numerous times per turn.
It also states that you may play the Recruited Work immediately or keep it in your hand during a future Action Phase.
All said - is it true that when you play the Recruited Work immediately that it does NOT cost 1 Action?
Also, if the Recruited Work is held in your hand then it DOES cost 1 Action played later?
Playing the Recruit Card is without a cost, but playing the recruited work costs you 1 action, even if you do so immediately.
