Peralta News – No Cuts Laney

12 December 2011. 0 comments

Bank divestment is an offensive tactic that is catching ground in the Occupy Movement. But not many people know much about Credit Unions, the promoted alternative to big banks. Laney College English Instructor Chris Weidenbach explains how moving your money to a local credit union may improve our money woes collectively. Weidenbach is part of the “No Cuts Laney” organization and he and his colleagues support the national idea of making the banking switch in order to fight corporate greed, promote local investment and ultimately improve the economical landscape. Steps like these may eventually improve the dire educational situation that many students and teachers have found themselves in do to unfair policy.
