Eddie: Pop! You can't move to Arizona! Ernesto: Why not? I'm only going to open a business in Arizona... Eddie: What kind of business? Ernesto: Mexican souvenir import shop.
What you say is not entirely true. Yes, the customer is the boss, but that does not make the customer the employer. I have a doctor, he is self employed, and he works for me when I need him to. When I pay him, I do not withhold any taxes, federal, state or social security. I do not have an EIN. I do not carry workmans comp insurance on anyone. I do not have a pool. I do not contribute to the state unemployment fund. In short I am not an employer. Also, you might note that some of the illegal aliens’s employers are outside of this country anyhow. Makes it kind of hard to go after them.
