My initial reaction to this was, 'Yup...', but then my brain woke up.

1)  There's usually a 5-10 day grace period on rent

2)  If you have direct deposit, paychecks will be there Friday morning, or even Thursdays (I was surprised over 4th of July when I was paid a day early!)

3)  People living paycheck-paycheck already know how to budget their funds to prepare for the holiday weekends:  Food stock up, bills paid, no unnecessary funds spent.

4)  If you don't have a bank account, your paycheck will be loaded onto a debit card, so overdrafts can be avoided.

I think the 'working poor' is more savvy than people give them credit....when they're not dependent on government assistance.
