Business crime

I hear through the grape vine of a number of companies and people that are repeatedly involved in crimes along the likes of illegal immigration minimum wage and so forth. Surprisingly these businesses and people seem to spring up again almost immediately doing the same things again.

I am reminded of the fine for a few thousand dollars received by the fellow who had an illegal gambling establishment. Clearly the punishments for these things are not always sufficient deterrents and some people seem to basically make a business out of breaching them.

I suggest version of three strikes and your out (my partner sugests two strikes and you are out) in regards to these sorts of crimes. Where you basically kill the business if it has a third breach and effectively bankrupt a person for their third offence.

What do you think? Would it work?
