    Currently in a conflict as I know many shops who employ and pay people off the books however I do know that these employees may be out of a job so I'm currently debating whether I should report it or whether to stick my nose out.

    You don't know the employee's situation, if they could get a better job they would. Also, they could actually be getting a fair amount considering they aren't paying tax.

    Inform the authorities and let them investigate. If the shops are complying with the law they have nothing to fear.

    Quite possibly if they are avoiding minimum wage then something else is going on, like they are employing illegal immigrants and relying on them to keep quiet because they are illegal. This is how hard working people get their wages undercut.

    Always amazes me how people have this culture of "don't be a grass" but then are surprised when Muslims don't self-police themselves and rat on the bad eggs amongst them to the authorities...

    Absolutely not. Minimum wage is a nonsensical concept that only leads to a decrease in number of jobs available. The owner should be able to pay them as little as he likes.
