This is how a successful business is run though it is morally wrong to some. How can a pizza parlor compete with one that cheats?

The line is thin between "tax avoidance" and "tax invasion". When I had a business, I spent the whole week in preparing tax return with all the receipts. It is unproductive. Actually I can save the entire week by using estimates. For a small fish, IRS will not waste their $1 audit to get 10 cents from me.

Many companies make the employees part-time so they do not have to pay the benefits. These employees have to find two or more jobs and waste the commute time between jobs. Thanks to ObamaCare that just has opposite effect.

It is similar in welfare cheats. I believe the new immigrant (not refugees) is supposed to be supported by their sponsor for 5 years. In reality, many collect welfare before then. The immigration office and the welfare office do not share information. I believe even some illegals collect benefits. California contributes about 12% GDP but takes up 1/3 of all Federal welfare expenses.

We had a case that an illegal sued and won against a business not paying min. wages. It violates supply and demand. If there is a better job, he should have taken it. It makes the business out-of-business and the lawyer richer. Who's right?
