Coming soon to a business near you.

If the Cretin-in-Chief’s taxes kick in...just wait.

The employers have no incentive. All of these off the books workers were referring to being unable to get a contract. Well, once they have a contract, they cannot be fired. If they do get fired, they usually sue, and the worker wins 99% of the cases.

I'm seriously surprised that she hasn't been questioned by the Finance Police.

For those who are unaware, google it. They're a very real organization in Italy.

Going Galt one try of espresso and pastries at a time. Keep taxes low and it isn't worth evading them. Make taxes too high and the smart and ambitious, the exact people who create the most wealth, simply evade them.

one article about this says their underground econmy is 250 million euro a year. If only they has a 10% tax rate during the past four years the 100 million would be a big help on their debt payments - but they want a much higher rate, so folks cheat.

When taxes and regulations and employee benefits get entirely out of hand, it is as if “an invisible hand” starts moving people into the underground economy.

I hear in Canada, if you ask a contractor to build you a deck, he will often quote you two prices - a cheaper price “off the books” and a more expensive price “one the books”.

Laws passed to artificially prop up the marginally employable almost ALWAYS seem to kick them in the ass.

If they hired her they would have to pay her benefits, couldn't ever fire her, and she would have to pay taxes on her income and forgo her welfare/dole payments. So she works off the system - and despairs of ever having a ‘real’ job.

In the USA full time employees have a ton of benefits mandated by law. So many marginally employable people have to commute between two or three “part time” jobs - because nobody will offer them full time work - because then they would have to pay the benefits mandated by law.

When will advocates of State power catch on that most people will ALWAYS do what is in their own economic best interest?

My very first job as a teenager, other than babysitting, was under the table as a hostess in a restaurant. The Waitresses split their tips with me and I made $1.79 an hour, tax and benefit free. To me, it was great money and I was glad to have the work.
