Whoever they may be, these workers are often used as a convenient scapegoat by officials. For example, when several sponsors of the The Backbone Award withdrew their money in 2011, they claimed their support had been granted through documents forged by “temporary workers.” In January 2013, one netizen quipped that Beijing’s two million propaganda workers “outside the system” must be temporary workers.
