Why Aren't Paychecks Paperless?

I was recently cleaning up my home office when I came across some papers I'd had since 2003.

They were paycheck stubs for a two-year period, just sitting in a pile wasting space.

I promptly shredded all of the stubs, but it got me wondering: why, in an age of direct deposit, are we still getting paper paycheck stubs?

I don't need them. In fact, I don't want them.

Every two weeks, the money gets automatically deposited into my account, and I get a paper stub showing my deductions, paid-time-off and year-to-date earnings.

But those paper stubs just collect. Why not send them to me as a PDF?

I'd have a lot less paper to collect, and my employer would save a lot of money by not printing paper and stuffing envelopes.

Let's go paperless with our paychecks. It just makes too much sense to not.
