Wow the middle east statistic is really low...I'd imagine if they took Israel out of the mix it would be even lower.

This.

How do people get paid, if they cant deposit checks?

Two savings accounts, a credit account and a debit account. That's modest for your average adult... I'm 24.

Hmm

Around here when you cash a check without an account, they charge you $10-$15..

Any employer who pays their employees in cash is doing some shady ****.

Had one at 16 with my folks and then I broke off and had my own later. Life without an account would be just a tad more sucky.
