    they earn their money "under the table". Judy Maltz said as much in one her items that at least three quarters of the Torah Scholars are prevented from working "legally" because the clause that requires them to have served in the Army. The result is that don't declare their income. Obviously the nature of working "without reciepts" means the pay is not as commensurate as the legal employments, and not as regular. So . . . you might call it touch and go, and Please God there is "something" some of the time. Were there some arrangement that didn't put Haredim in the corner, indeed, much of the "working poor" for whom any extra income becomes attached by the tax man before they can benefit from what was supposed to provide a better life for their families. Other than that, I always wonder why the banks and the tax authorities have this tendancy to chase the working poor, and the middle class, while they treat the upper percentiles with soft gloves. I guess coupon clipping is such hard work that they deserve special treatment.
