    In Seattle paychecks are not checks but salary warrants. Any lawyer out there who can explain the difference?

    Anyway, during the previous depression Seattle issued salary warrants which were no good at that time but the city would buy them back at 50 cents on the dollar. I have seen other city checks that were stamped on the back something to the effect "if this bounces we will pay 5% on it until it is cashed." Thus there is historical precedent in the US.
