    Court says check cashing fees by Labor Ready are illegal - By MARK JOHNSON, AP
    The Court of Appeals upheld the appellate court ruling, saying any fee for a cash voucher is not allowed under state statutes.

    Labor law 'manifests the legislative intent to assure that the unequal bargaining power between an employer and an employee does not result in coercive economic arrangements by which the employer can divert a worker's wages for the employer's benefit,' Chief Judge Judith Kaye wrote. 'Labor Ready's CDM revenues demonstrate the employer's benefit from the payments - the inequity that the Legislature sought to prevent.'

    Stacey Burke, a spokeswoman for the company, said the decision will hurt Labor Ready employees because they will no longer have the option to get cash from the ATM-like machines.
