Cashless strikes me as yet another way to marginalize the homeless. As you point out:

The higher the household income, the less cash was used.

And when there’s not even a household at all, just a person, cash dominates over other forms of payment. I think more than a few business owners have figured out that they can “legitimately” decline to serve the majority of homeless people by simply going cashless.

Not a fan of this trend.
