Question: What would you do?

We just moved and he started a new job that he loves! He's on his 3rd week, starting today, and he just found out they get paid under the table. He didn't know sooner because he was on a trial period for 2 weeks where you don't sign any paperwork or anything yet anyway.
Now, he loves this job and it's good money and it can actually lead to a good career, but the whole under the table thing scares the crap out of me. It does him too. We're not sure what to do. Keep working and chance something happening, or find a legit job?
I want him to find a 'real' job, but I don't want to seem like a bitch because he finally found something he loves to do and I want him to be happy.
I'm just going anon for this one, just in case!
Editing to add that I'm not sure if it's different for the small businesses. I know they don't have to go by federal guidelines for some things, but not sure the full extent. This company has maybe 8-9 people working for them, so I know certain things don't apply.
