Probably only uses a card and can’t relate that to actual money.

You know the whole biblical prophecy thing…
^^^^^^^^

This!!!!

Most do not carry cash. Swipe the card and done. No concept of the transaction.

Design of the education system and makes transition to cashless society easier.

I have a couple of libtard friends I debate with from time to time

I propose to them that voting rights should be for homeowners and landowners. No ownership, no vote
Sounds good for the way things used to be, but more and more big investment companies are buying up property and more people are renting.
I don't want a few big companies "voting" and basically making all the decisions (as it they're not now).

A friend of mine runs a retail establishment,,,
In the interview process the first thing he does is test them.

He simulates a small sale (under $10.00),,,
To see if they can do simple math in their head.

He told me that over half of the kids get it wrong.

In just 40 years we've gone from teaching Latin and Calculus in high school,,,
To teaching remedial Math and English at community colleges.

The sad part is that these kids don't understand how bad off they are.

If you really want to confuse them, give them a dollar coin or a two dollar bill.
Most cash drawers don't have places to put those odd values. They get tossed under the tray or have to be handed off to a manager. Also adds time to being able to count the drawer at the end of the day. But yes, let's be mean to retail associates who work for low wages.

If we as a country we're to do this, a few things would need to be clarified. 1. Only land owning CITIZENS could vote. 2. Business, corporations etc. are not people, and cannot vote, or provide anything to any candidate, PAC, or party. 3. Service equals citizenship.😁. 4. Any citizen who is serving, or has served, property owner or not may vote.

Sadly, it's not their fault (mostly).

And they probably learned their English while growing up reading OSA.

There is a netflix show for little kids that is amazing.
It is called Numberblocks.

My grandson gets a lot of life lessons from me and one was counting money and knowing the differences in different coins.

This Numberblocks show has him whipped into multiplication tables.

He is pretty good at it for being 5 years old.

We were making piles of coins that would = 100 cents.
I was racing him with a big pile of change poured out on the floor.

Yea I went slow and let him win but he was pretty quick at counting and adding them up.
Awesome grandpa right there.
