Update about Wells Fargo CEO Protest

November 30, 2011 in News

Hi all- Today we had a spirited crowd of about 40 protest John Stumpf CEO of Wells Fargo in front of the Benton Convention Center today. Members from Occupy Greensboro and Charlotte joined us as well as an awesome drumming group that vamped the atmosphere of the protest up!!!  It was a great event and went very well. The response to us from the public was mostly positive, so pat on the back for everyone who participated and well done!

  1. It’s great to see Occupy Winston engaged. Have you heard about the Republican Governer’s meeting and Frank Luntz? If not, Google what he had to say about the movement. The right appears to be afraid of the movement. They do not want it to spread. I don’t trust them, however, the movement is on the right side of the inequality issue in America. Thanks for all your hard work, I will participate at other events.

  2. Way to go, folks! I couldn’t be there in person but was in spirit. Thank you for speaking out for the 99%!

  3. Can you believe that in 2010 when National Uemployment was 9.1% Wells Fargo CEO John G Stumpf was Compensate $18,973,722. Now, I don’t know about you but to me that’s way to much pay for one man to recieve in a year.

    I was so mad when I learned this that I stop banking with Wells Fargo and started banking with Truliant Credit Union. CEO’s extremely high salaries in my mind is the reason for so many lay-offs in the USA. Do you know how many Americans can be employed with $18,973,722? Let’s just day each employee was paid $50,000 per year then with Stumpf’s salary alone 360 people could be employed.

    But Stumpf is not the highest paid CEO. Check this out. In 2010, Viacom’s CEO Philippe P. Dauman received $84,515,308 in total compensation. I have to ask the question again. How many Americans can be employed with his salary?

    Please check out this website if you have the stomach to know the top paid CEO’s in American. http://www.aflcio.org/corporatewatch/paywatch/ceou/top100_2011.cfm but I must warn you you will and should get angry.
