I’m from Pakistan and here many people work and earn via jobs that aren’t registered in any sort of tax network.
An example is my local fruits and vegetable vendor. This guy steals electricity off the grid for 2 lightbulbs that he has on above his cart and sells his vegetables from there and does every transaction through cash and though this is just 1 example there are millions of people who work these kinds of jobs whether it be a woman who’s a maid or a kid who works at a cafe serving tea.
The question is how are these people’s incomes accounted for? Aren’t they technically counted as unemployed people with no income even though they’re earning at least enough to survive.
