11-7-11: Banking on Bank Transfer Day
How do you feel about your bank? Or do you even use a bank? There’s been a lot of anger in the last few months against these businesses, visible in the Occupy Baltimore movement, and more recently, on Bank Transfer Day. The movement, organized on Facebook, encouraged people nation-wide to move their money from large bank chains to credit unions on or before this past Saturday –November 5th.
Did it work? Banks ain’t telling. But we wanted to take he temperature here in Maryland — so we took a totally unscientific sample. One of our producers, Stephanie Hughes, talked to people outside Bank of America branches in Charles Village about why they’re staying with the bank — or why they’re not.
And of course we want to hear from you. What are your feelings about banks? Why are you sticking with Bank of America, or PNC? Alternatively, why are you moving to a credit union?
We’d also like to know what questions you have – about bank fees, about mortgages, about how credit unions work. Call us at 410-881-3862, email us at email@example.com, or leave a comment. We’ll work at getting some answers.
