Change Your Bank

Posted by Reuben Turner | 18-02-2010 17:40 | Category: Activism, Consumerism, Corporate Social Responsibility, Politics



Don’t like your bank? Change it. Change Your Bank is a grassroots campaign asking consumers to complain to their banks about ridiculous bank bonuses and payscales. In the UK banks such as the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) which have been bailed out by the taxpayer are awarding senior executives enormous bonuses for lacklustre performance. Not only is this unfair, it’s contributing towards a society which is more and more unequal – where people who move money around for a living are rewarded far, far more than nurses, care workers, firefighters etc.
