I'm not saying all business owners will, but some certainly will, and it will be far easier to do and be more difficult to catch than having cash or illegal worker.
It would also be a disincentive for someone running a fledgling business out of their garage from going legit.
Why would a business owner go underground? its no skin of there backs! What your saying makes zero sense. There is absolutely no reason for a business to go "underground" you're on the wrong side of things now the business owner may pay his help cash, that already goes on.
