Wells Fargo fires a guy for crime he committed 49 years ago8/30/2012
Richard Eggers is a 68-year-old Vietnam War veteran – and one-time criminal whose past was too hot for Wells Fargo. The Des Moines, Iowa, resident was fired in July from his job as a customer service rep at Wells Fargo Home Mortgage. His transgression? Inserting a cardboard cutout of a dime into a Laundromat washing machine in 1963. Eggers was fired under strict federal guidelines on bank employment issued in 2011, standards intended to deter executives and managers from committing crimes. Eggers, who was making $29,795 annually, says he's not the whom the law was aimed at. Wells Fargo says the rules are straightforward. [Source]
