Cashiers battling to keep their company-issued phones

The ATMs where cashiers and even cashiers’ assistants used to have access to money are closing. If you’re used to ever-present cash or accessible credit, you will be out of luck. At least if you’re in North Carolina.

Hundreds of cashiers in the state went to court to stop the state from cutting back its phone system that made deposits easy for workers to use — instead of instead of relying on corporate funds to do so. When no solution emerged, a judge said the state couldn’t continue operating the system anymore, allowing them to stop the checks. It’s a familiar story. More than 20 cashiers were eventually won over to the idea of using the phone system, which now allows them to make deposits 24 hours a day. The bank also set up an account online, which cashiers can use instead of the ATMs.

“So many cashiers and other position within the industry say, oh, you know, we’ve always had these kind of things,” said David Pugh, executive director of the NC Workers’ Compensation Association, an organization for cashiers and other workers who use accident insurance as their main source of income. “I want to go back to that way of life.”
