I think I am working an illegal job. Ok, not "think" I know I am. The person who hired me explained how this is a new company and she doesn't have the funds coming in yet to hire on regular employees so she needs help from her friends. She said I would be working for her at less than minimum wage but it would be OK because she would give me a 1099 at the end of the year so I can report my income on my taxes. At the time I was despirate for work (got to eat right?) so I agreed to do it. Now I am thinking that this is wrong. There are laws about wages for a reason and if she isn't paying minimum wage than this is a problem. I do not want to get in trouble for working this job. I am conflicted about leaving though because I actually like what I do. But I have NEVER done anything illegal in my life and I don't want to now. Is this is fact wrong and I should just quit? Or is it like she says... just a loophole that allows new business owners to get on their feet. HELP!
