Central Florida JwJ Greets Chase Banksters in Tampa
Jobs with Justice is among the protestors at the shareholder meeting of JP Morgan Chase Bank in Tampa, Florida this morning. They are among the many calling for Jamie Diamond’s resignation, not for the $2.3 billion trade losses to investors, but because of his on-going insistence on gambling the homes and jobs away of everyday people.
This most recent investment disaster is yet another symptom of how out of control Wall Street has gotten. It begs the need for more regulation, such as the Financial Transactions Tax which would make bankers think twice about such high risk trading.
“These are not just numbers on a screen,” said Denise Diaz- director of Central Florida Jobs with Justice. “These are people’s retirement funds, homes, and lifelong savings. Jamie Diamond has gambled with our lives.”
