 Tupian 1 -2118200411181556270

A netizen by the name “1913” published a list of an unidentified city’s various government agencies (including tax-funded organizations) and the numbers of public servants in them. It triggered interesting comments, in which people did the math on the total number of public servants in this city (xx) and how much money this size of a government will spend, etc. An excel sum-up shows that there are a total of 14,268 public servants, one comment goes. Another estimates that the city pays 600 million yuan in salaries and another 300 million yuan in other expenses, while the local average income would be 1,350 yuan a month. Translated from bullog.cn:

Averages Joes don’t have an idea about the lineup of government agencies. Even those who have worked in one may only speak a few things about government.
