1-in-3 Bank Tellers Need Public Assistance

Posted 8 months ago on Feb. 17, 2014, 3:11 p.m. EST by OccupyWallSt (1) from Plainfield, NJ

As if Citigroup has not not had more than its slice of the economy already, one in three bank tellers in the United States need public assistance of some kind. If you are in New York City tomorrow, Tuesday, February 18th, join the Committee for Better Banks at 10:30 am at Citigroup Headquarters, 388 Greenwich, Manhattan.

The community demands the same type of benefits held by finance workers across the globe – including those at U.S. owned banks:

  • In Brazil, where bank employees receive 180 days paid maternity leave.
  • In Germany, where bank employees over 50 are protected against dismissal.
  • In the Philippines, where finance workers receive a quarterly bonus equal to one month’s pay.
  • In Argentina, where finance workers receive guaranteed access to a pension plan.

It is time to say NO to more welfare to Wall Street.

“This is the wealthiest and most powerful industry in the world, and it’s substantially subsidized by our tax dollars, money that we could be spending on child care or pre-K,” said Deborah Axt, co-executive director at Make the Road New York''

''Profits at the nation’s banks topped $141.3 billion last year, with the median chief executive pay hovering around $552,000, according to SNL Financial. In contrast, the US Bureau of Labor Statistics pegs the median annual income of a bank teller at $24,100, or $11.59 an hour.''

This is how The 99% live and are parasitised upon. Bill Moyers is a warrior for The 99%. Thanx for an excellent news-post. Solidarity @ Workers Everywhere !!! Unionise and find your 'radical eyes' !! You ''have nothing to lose but your chains'' !

[PS : @ Finance Industry & Other Workers - time to start snitching on Bankster and Corporate avarice, malfeasance and illegality to activists like 15now.org, occupySEC.org, 'altbank.org' and wikileaks.org & leverage your wage-slavery for the greater 99% good ~*~]

In compliment ( I HOPE/INTEND )

Remember Uncle Tom's Cabin? While it was originally published as an anti slavery tool/work. I ( and I think many others ) can relate the story - ALSO - to the Banking Industry with Simon Legree as the stereo typical Bank CEO/Owner and Uncle Tom as the average working individual.

Just a Thought.

I think it also relates well to the captains of industry and the CEO's of wallstreet - so many appropriate crossover relations.
