Cash-in-hand

Not sure I have ever taken part in this shady practice but millions are it seems.

Bad as Starbucks?

cash in hand will never stop and people who receive cash in hand never report the full amount, fact - trying to reduce their tax bill is their god given right

All western economies are removing cash from the system. There are businesses that are moving towards completely cashless operation. Soon only the gyp-o's will be using cash.

Thanks for calling me a gyp-o. Cash is good. If you have it you can spend it. if you don't you can't.

I answered your question on Rochdale but haven't had a reply. Maybe because you missed it as candw took the thread to page 2 shortly after.

I live in probably one of the most cashless countries in the world - all bank accounts come with a cashless wallet phone app called Vipps, so you can transfer 'cash' instantly to people, so never really have need for coinage anymore, apart from when abroad where many places take only it.

Doesn't bother me that all my purchases and outgoings are monitored. Far more convenient than carrying it around. I find it odd that travel bureaus still exist - their rates are always worse than your visa card as you're paying for their booths at airports. Many are wedded to habit. Can you still get travellers cheques and postal orders?

The cash machine at my local Co-op was out of cash the other morning, but they were happy for me to buy i with my card. Roll on instant finger print transfer.

If we can sort out a cashless society, perhaps Big Issue sellers will be part of history.

Why would you get rid of one of the only ways of telling legit homeless from the pan-handlers?

My regular big-tissue seller is always complaining about the fake homeless that litter the streets of Manchester working in shifts to get the commuters and tourists.

Meanwhile our hostel capacity is never above 70% - 'homeless'

Perhaps it's 30% empty because you've replaced a 'prayer for a bed' with a lecture on how to 'open your own businesses and prosper', when they just want a lie down?

No it's 30% empty because there aren't that many genuine homeless - just like food banks are full of opportunists happy to snaffle some freebies if they are there.

They've stopped the recommendation system then? Anyone can just turn up?

How many does your hostel hold when full?

Fuck me Candw are you on a mission to be so obviously wrong on all points discussed.

We even had some in our village, they kept getting moved on by the OB and you watch them trudge off to their flat above one of the shops.

Though some jobs are no doubt shit absolutely no excuse for anyone past their teens to be on the streets begging nowadays.

Fuck the short term we will build a 1000 year Hull City Reich

No mental health problems round your way, which is good. Must be the clean, healthy sea air.

The hostels in Hull are almost always full. Fact.
