I find the current movement toward cashless quite disturbing as I am experiencing one of the repercussions.
My doctor’s practice has signs up announcing their change to a cashless business and encouraging the use of EFTPOS payments.
Near these signs is also one that shows the fees that they add to EFTPOS transactions for various cards.
To me this is so wrong.
They are forcing you to use your card and then charging you for doing so.
This just makes the banks richer and pensioners like me (and others) poorer.
What can be done?
