The truth is the complete opposite. D's win the early vote, especially on weekend days, because they don't
have time to take off work on a Tuesday. A voters in white collar jobs (I would be in this group) have the flexibility to miss a couple hours of work on a weekday. A lot of poor people are in jobs where they are not given that flexibility. They work defined shifts that, if they happen to fall during election hours, tough luck. That's why they are willing to endure long hours on a Saturday—because it's their only "free" time.
