Governor Gaidam said that he has the names top level government officials who have put their wives and children illegally on the local government payment vouchers and are collecting the salaries and called on them to remove those fake names with immediate effect.

    What if the wife and children are listed as domestic servants and they are the ones doing the domestic chores and there is no other domestic servants in that home?

    Can they still be classified as ghost workers if the civil servant man of the house if entitled to a certain number of domestic servants and these members of his family are sitting home without jobs and being fed by him in these hard times; can you still see them as ghost workers then?
