12. That's why we want in
Get it.

We have too much at stake. It's not just the jobs in the banking industry itself, but the many workers that have their investments in these banks. If they are to be saved, our voices need to be heard. the California Teachers retirement fund, alone, has as much money invested as the GNP of more than 2/3 of every nation on earth.

We want a seat at that table.
