In addition to their 6 times higher regular salary, Chinese refugees who mostly occupied government and military positions applied all kind of fabricated/fake receipts to get funds for their personal wealth from government/military expenditure (at that time nearly 20% government expenditure were for military, compared around 5% of government expenditure was designated to educational budget). Because too many fabricated/fake receipts to get funds for their personal gain, they used up military fiscal budget. As a result, the expenditure of military academics and military training were allocate into educational category (for your comparison, in US the expenditure of West Point, Naval Academy,,,,, are NOT from education budget). Including the money from their fabricated/fake receipts, average income of Chinese refugees is at least 20 times (2000 %) higher than average Formosan farmers and workers.
none of Chinese refugees (yes NO ONE during my stay at that time) thought they will fight back to China or really trusted the dictator Chiang or believed ruling political party or attracted by ideology. They strongly supported dictator Chiang and ruling political party purely want to milk the system and enslaved Formosan for their personal gain, especially for their position, political power, money, and for a lot of money in order to honor their father and ancestors.
