This is something new to me.  For about two generations between 190BC and 130BC some people volunteered to become temple slaves, says Dr Kim Ryholt -see Sci News.  Apparently it was preferable to conscription as forced hard labour by the king.  Apparently most of those who volunteered as temple slaves were unable to name their fathers.

I think this is true because there's no other work they could get than be slaves. I can just imagine the hardships they had to go through everyday and they are just given little amount of food as payment or even none sometimes. It must be hard.
