in JUNE at my job they are going to start paying us with a ATM MASTERCARD no more checks ...the bad thing is they charge you 50 cents every time you use thecard and if you want to take your money out the ATM machines charge you as well and you can only take out like 300 at a time it adds up i was happy with mydirect deposit now i gotta deal with this BS

Is your job doing this through a certain bank? Because the bank the cards are issued through do not charge you to use their ATMs it's only when you useother ATMs that you are charged. The .50 is usually a hassle but I have only seen that applied when you don't make the required minimum purchase fromwherever you're buying from.

Really? Typically it's the small businesses that pay their employees in this manner. Larger places usually keep direct deposit as an option. weird

That's so stupid for the people who have bank accounts. I'd be pissed, all of my banking and bill paying is done online and in some casesautomatically. Messing with a debit card not through my bank would be such a hassle.

You should just use the card to pay bills. I mean pay your friends bills with your card and get the cash. I'm sure you kow a few people that can give youcash .

I remember reading about companies doing this to cut down on the cost of payroll checks. They should still have the direct deposit option but yet another signof this recession

thats sucks dude.
If they put the money on the card, they don't have to pay out the money until you spend it. For example:

Before: you get a check of 200, they gotta pay that money straight out, 200 comes out of their pocket
After: you get 200, they tell comdata or whatever card company to set the limit on the card to 200, but you only spend 20 in a month, at the end of the month,they only give 20 to comdata.

Regardless, there's gotta be another way. You can't save money that's on a debit card and you can't pay rent that's on a debit card,especially with all those fees.
