Well, you have to admit, these people are not just a face in the bank, they serve a purpose. In Minneapolis they deal with those who look to create a scene and those who prey on you if they weren't there. I would say they're due for fair compensation.

So basically they're finally making it official. Most security people I see downtown are standing around chit-chatting with their buddies, on cell phones, or having smoke breaks a few building away so their supervisor won't see them.

Unions are a way for low skilled illegal immigrants to raise large families. Shouldn't we save these jobs for American students and retired people looking for a few extra bucks? Security was what I did when I went to school, now these jobs are hard to find for students because of unions like this.

Why are they picketing Wells Fargo,who has nothing to do with their wages or benefits. They work for a separate company, who contracts with the bank and others.

“I have three beautiful children and I pay $280 per month for health insurance." Lucky him. Most of us wish we only paid $280.00 per month!
