Jomari Peterson, thanks for responding! I think your comments are spot on. In the case of SweetGreen and perhaps other cashless establishments I hope to incite a conversation about what happens when innovation leaves marginalized communities behind. I understand 100% why a company would seek to go cashless. However, sometimes policies with the best intentions still have unintended consequences for the most vulnerable people. Your perspective is much appreciated, especially as we see this trend expand across the country. I’m happy we can get ahead of the trend with dialogue like this!
