    Crackdown on phantom employees, “gnocchi”, in the Argentine Congress

    Authorities have begun proceedings to remove 160 of them from their positions, while 30 others decided to resign when confronted with evidence of absenteeism

    Nearly 200 phantom workers at Argentina's parliament have been caught in a crackdown on employees who only show up sporadically for their jobs, it has been reported. According to La Nacion, the Argentine Congress implemented a new attendance control system for employees two months ago, and it has already caught 190 who had not shown up for long periods without a good explanation.
