Can a judge refuse to give you credit for time served if you did physical labor in the work center?

In court the judge said he was sentenced to 6 months in county with no time served. After 10 days he was sent to the work center for the remainder of his time. While in the work center he did physical labor for the County(cleaned highway, worked at salvation army, worked trash detail at community events, etc). Also during his time he lost his job, apartment, and vehicle. Once he was released he had nothing, he was homeless for a few weeks.
