Mallorca cutting down on cash in hand work in Sa Calobra

Two people have been arrested, one is a restaurant manager in Sa Calobra, for employing seven people to work cash in hand, without contracts, for up to 14 hours per day.

The seven employees are all from foreign nationalities. Does this mean they were being exploited?

Although illegal, many people work 'cash in hand' in Soller and the surrounding areas. Having lived there I know many.

Is it exploitation? or a means of surviving for the employees?

I will leave this open for debate, only saying when I received my first contract in Soller it took a whole weight of my mind.
