    Yes, cashies are everywhere. Cashies invest the employee in the fraud, allowing them to double dip with welfare. In addition to this purchase of their silence, there is the threat that if you get the shonky in trouble you’ll never work in this town again. Because it is off the books a lot of IR protections don’t apply.

    Hospitality owners should shut up about IR laws, half of them don’t even follow them. Hopefully, the more they bleat about legitimizing this exploitation the sooner the government will take a good hard look at the issue.
