This really bothers you, doesn't it. Been chewing on you day after day.
I spend my rainy days servicing equipment and trying figure out how to reschedule everything. I don't have time to worry about somebody else. I think there are probbaly a lot worse tax evasive people out there, like large businesses who can afford several good accountants who know how to tweak the system on tax breaks and end up raping the system.
Plenty of LCO's on this thread use 'suspected' illegal labor and have no regrets.
I just want to know how to pay them and stay out of trouble with the government. I'm beginning to suspect the answer is, just don't ask any questions about their SS#. But that doesn't solve the problem of them cashing their paycheck.
Im beginning to think that you are a democrat baptist.
