I've been going over the books and I don't see several members of the staff listed and accounted for.
Jina:Oh, I have a special arrangement with a few of them.
I pay them under the table.
Martin:Are you sure that's wise?
You could get busted for tax evasion.
Jina:No one will be the wiser if I pay a few people off the books.
All of the people I hire want a job, and a few of them I pay under the minimum wage.
Since they don't have to report their income, they come out ahead in the end.
So what's the problem?
Martin:I just want to make sure you're aware of the ramifications.
If the government finds out about it, you could be up the creek.
Jina:I'm not worried. Everybody does it.
吉娜:我高枕无忧 。天下乌鸦一般黑 。
Martin:If you say so.
I'm willing to turn a blind eye, but you're on your own if you get audited!
