NYC stores required to accept cash payment

New York City lawmakers voted on a bill that would require stores and restaurants to accept cash for payment. Lawmakers say that businesses that accept only credit and debit cards are discriminating against those who lack bank accounts and credit cards. Businesses that refuse cash will be fined $1,000 for the first violation and $1,500 after that.

As legal tender, they should have always accepted it.

Unless the business is in a really awful place and gets robbed frequently idk why businesses wouldn't want cash. That way they don't have to pay credit card company fees for running the card.

This is what government wants a cashless society making it easier to track the population and make sure that taxes are being paid because everyone is just as corrupt as they are

I get it... it should be allowed as legal tender... but at the same time I believe businesses should have a right to do what they want with their business (i.e. card only; cash only etc.)... this may backfire in the sense that criminals (within and without) now know ALL stores will have cash on hand...

redundant law is redundant. the only thing useful about it is public awareness and defined punishments
