You know lots of these people. They’re in your family. I don’t even want to use the word they because this is such a large fraction of our population living paycheck to paycheck. This is not some tiny group of low lives that can’t get their act together. This is just normal for most people on earth.

It’s about Time

Did you know that 100 million Americans live paycheck-to-paycheck? 40% of Americans couldn't come up with $400 in the event of an emergency. These are your neighbors, family members, and friends, salary as well as hourly. Why is this happening in the richest country in the world? And what can be done? Structure of pay is important, the amount of pay is important, but no one has been talking about the timing of pay . . . until now.

Time matters. That's a very important point to take away from this discussion. It matters. It affects people's lives . . . the difference between being a little bit behind on your bills and a little bit ahead on your bills has ripple effects that become large for people . . . And there's a saying in the law, justice delayed is justice denied.
