Keep in Mind

Don't mandate that your un-banked workers take up a card. Some may want to open a regular bank account not featured on Wisewage.

Don't impose direct deposit to all unless you know for sure that the Department of Labor of your state allows it.

Don't influence the choice of cards. While you may have your own opinion, let your workers choose whichever card they think is best for them.
