Public Outrage Over Bank of America's Self-Serving, Predatory and Dangerous Practices Heats Up
In recent weeks, there’s been a growing chorus of public outrage over the lavish bonuses paid to bank executives whose self-serving profit schemes and risky financial deals led to today’s economic collapse. After spending billions to bailout big banks for their bad behavior, taxpayers are making their voices heard in the streets, in the halls of Congress, and through online campaigns to say: Enough is enough. It’s time to close the chapter on corporate excess, restore America’s middle class, and create an economy that works for everyone.
This month, in a series of grassroots actions and advocacy efforts, American taxpayers are turning up the heat on Bank of America, the largest financial institution and the poster child of the kind of corporate excess and dangerous profit schemes that must come to an end if we are to rebuild an economy with strength that can last.
Leading up to Bank of America’s annual shareholder meeting on April 29, consumers, employees and shareholders will call for reform, from top to bottom, of Banks of America’s practices of preying on consumers, abusing employees, and using their power in Washington to block pro-worker legislation that would help restore our economy and rebuild the Middle Class.
