    to cash your pay check, and do. People who don't have bank accounts get all kinds of charges, and have to get other sorts of cards to pay bills a lot of the time. Which isn't to say it isn't a good idea, it is, but we need to look at altering the infrastructure we have so that it doesn't cost people money to use cash.

    If debt were a moral issue then, lacking morals, corporations could never be in debt.

      Every action has a cost.  If I go somewhere to protest it is going to cost, (and I better have someone with funds handy to bail me out should I get arrested). I think this is an idea that people can do with no risk and only a possible low cost.  It would allow people who can't afford to take a day off to participate that could not do so otherwise.

      Not everyone can risk their jobs and income.

        I was just thinking of ways we could increase participation.
