Here are three things anyone wanting to hold Wells Fargo accountable needs to know.
Last week I shared a letter I had to written to Wells Fargo CEO John Stumpf in March of 2013, regarding the intense sales culture and the negative impact it had on employees, including my sister, who was about to lose her job because she could not meet her sales goals. In that letter, I quoted to him Wells Fargo's Vision Statement:
The reality star's robbery came up during oral arguments in a bank fraud case.
It comes as no surprise to me that employees at Wells Fargo resorted to dishonesty in opening bogus accounts, just to keep their jobs. Why am I not surprised? Because in 2013, after six years of employment, my sister was about to lose her job at Wells Fargo due to sales goals.
Banks profit from low wages and job insecurity in more ways than the obvious. They don't just pocket the wage differential; they use the poverty-level wages and job insecurity to force employees to do unethical things they couldn't otherwise get them to do.
Millennials aren't incredibly worried about bank fraud -- but they should be. According to a 2014 Federal Trade Commission study, 20- to 29-year-olds are the highest reporting group for identity theft, making up a full fifth of complaints across all age brackets.
You know the statistic. We incarcerate a higher proportion of the population than any other country does. Hundreds of thousands of young, now aging, men, are doing hard time for possession of small amounts of drugs. More and more people find themselves in jail because they got caught with bench warrants for their arrest for exorbitant fines they could not afford to pay. More than a century after debtors prisons were abolished, thousands are again behind bars because of debts. But one category of felon is free on the street. I refer, of course, to corporate criminals. Consider the case of a checkout clerk at Walmart who puts her hands in the till and walks off with a couple of hundred bucks of the company's money. That clerk could expect to face prosecution and jail. Now consider her boss, who cheats her of hundreds of dollars of pay by failing to accurately record the time she clocked in, or the overtime she worked.
