    “The biggest U.S. bank is planning to open more branches, expand mortgage lending and boost pay for some employees.”

    Or as the left put it - it's terrible employees get paid more and citizens have more access to branches and home loans are more available.

    A part of me is happy for their employees, while a part of me is saddened that we allow a criminal syndicate the size of JPMorgan to thrive.

    LOLOLOLOL....that's funny because where I live, most of there branches are all automated....they have on average each day, about 2 tellers, if that. But I can definately see the housing shit happening again, after all they did have to pay 560 million in fines for fuckin over the poor...why not try it for a second time.

    LOLOLOL...this bank, paid on average fines upwards of a billion for cheating poor people out of their homes and I am 1000% certain, they're gonna give it another try...with Washington's approval this time. As for raising pay, and? This is what I'm finding most facisnating.....here we are applauding industries, that have made trillions in profits over the last 10 years...just sitting on money. Nobody was getting raises and some still aren't....myself included and yet we want to pat these mf's on the backs for now doing so....give me a fuckin break!!

    I give most of these companies credit for investing what they save from the tax cuts on their employees, but JPMorgan deserves no such pat on the back. When you have tens of billions to piss away on numerous fines and lawsuits you have the "windfall" to invest in your employees, tax cuts or not.

    Not just the banks, but all factions of industries in this country have been making mega profits and nobody in the 47% range was getting shit.

    Yeah, a few thousand extra is meaningless to the average American.

    You should make a campaign ad out of that.
