Occupy Baltimore: Convention Center & Closing Bank Accounts
Reading through some of the discussions Occupy Baltimore has, one mentioned a conversation with an employee of Bank of America. They noted that the people working at these local branches are apart of the 99 percent, and these banks, because of time frames mostly have to refuse service to a big lot of people.
Kayleigh went onto say that if you walk in one at a time and request to close your account, they will gladly do so. Others pointed out that standing in a group outside and individually walking in would be playing by their rules.
Today at 4:00PM they will be joining the Convention Center workers. They say since they've had 5% to 16% wage cuts, and they are protesting to restore those wages. Held at Baltimore Convention Center, corner of Charles and Pratt.
