Barney Frank and friends passed regulations REQUIRING this to happen. Lenders face huge fines if someone has any criminal record, no matter how minor.

There is an exception process through (FDIC I think); but it can take up to a year to get someone cleared.

Basically the article states that this 68-year-old worker was fired over putting a cardboard slug (a dime) into a washing machine back in 1963, when he was just 19 years old.

Just goes to show that your mistakes follow you for your entire life!

Lesson for the young people out there.

What I’ve learned from this story is that there’s no room for repentence and having paid your dues in the liberal mindset.

Did you really think we want those laws observed? said Dr. Ferris. We want them to be broken. You’d better get it straight that it’s not a bunch of boy scouts you’re up against... We’re after power and we mean it... There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What’s there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced or objectively interpreted – and you create a nation of law-breakers – and then you cash in on guilt. Now that’s the system, Mr. Reardon, that’s the game, and once you understand it, you’ll be much easier to deal with. (’Atlas Shrugged’ 1957)

I guess it’s good that bankers should have more integrity than politicians. Still it seems so flagrantly hypocritical that said politicians are the ones ordering them to do to... one gets the idea this is clearly something that Wells Fargo did not want.

He’s 68 and is approaching retirement. His insurance rates are going to rise, too. They’ll fire this guy and hire a 20 something bonehead for half his wages and benefits.

No more to the story. New regulations require finger prints and back ground checks for everyone. This was not required before; at least the finger prints. There was some background check done, but not this extensive.
It started about 2 years ago; some well qualified long term employees have been cut loose.
Any conviction, no matter how old or small, will require the bank to immediately fire someone. No wiggle room.
It’s insanity brought on by Barney Frank and Chris Dodd.

Aside from the obvious stupidity of this over reaction, this man should take out an ad:

“Is there ANYBODY in Wells Fargo management who is willing to publicly assert that THEY are not guilty of a more grievous behavior, at any time in their adult life?”

Doesn’t surprise me that this is in Des Moines. West Des Moines and Des Moines have thousands of Wells Fargo employees.

Wonder if he will get his retirement? Wells Fargo is probably going to screw him out of that...

There is no lesson here other than that in this country you cannot live down a mistake made so long ago. Well a possible lesson is that the system will screw you out of your retirement any chance it gets.

“What I’ve learned from this story is that there’s no room for repentence and having paid your dues in the liberal mindset.”

The fact that this man lost his job is just plain evil!

This termination, and the law which compelled it must be challenged to a legal fight.

Sadly, Wells Fargo dare not stand up for their loyal employee, lest the federal bureaucrats descend upon them to harass their people and eat out their substance.

Sound familiar?

what are the odds that a teen who put a slug in a coin laundry (and nothing more) will cheat and euchre someone out of their mortgage. it ought to be left up to the bank, as they’re the ones responsible for any employee’s misbehavior anyhow.

It was, in many ways, a different world in 1963--Iran was an ally, Poland was an enemy. Maine and Vermont were "red" states while Texas and South Carolina were "blue" states.

In other areas, little has changed--in 1963, a Castro ruled Cuba and a Brown governed California.

They'll be held more than responsible -- they'll be economically punished severely by a jury if this man victimizes anyone while on the job.

If you knowingly employ a con and that con victimizes someone connected with the work he's employed to do, it's likely the business will be held financially responsible.

We should have severe punishments for financial fraud and political corruption! How Corzine sleeps at night is beyond me, I bet he is tucked in by Holder himself, Corzine is a thief and should be in jail, a real jail!

When I was in college, there was a dryer in the dorm that ran all the time, with no coins needed. It would stop only if the door was opened. We called it the “eternal dryer”.

"lesson for young people"

So when the nuns told us some school transgression was going on our permanent records, they were going to send them to future employers? Then I'm sunk. At least I would have been sunk...I retired last year. Maybe they'll put a crimp in my ss benefits.

I don't agree with it but it's true. Young people need to be very wary. The Facebook picture they post today of themselves drinking beer out of a bong could cost them a job 40 years from now. This 1963 incident coming back to haunt this guy is just the beginning. That's what I'm trying to convey to the youngsters out there. Not saying it's right but they need to be careful.

Meanwhile, Bill Ayers works with public schools as an academic after being exposed as a Communist agent working in support of the North Vietnamese military in a time of war engaging in naked treason and terrorist activity.

Also, the Democrat Party believes that felons should have the right to vote but even non-violent felons should NOT have the the right to self-defense.

Liberalism is a mental disorder

Liberals want felons to vote (democrat) but do not believe they are entitled to the right to bear arms (even for non-violent offenses).

Which does not negate in the slightest the principle that it should not be government ordering how a bank ought to handle that risk. The bank should be able to choose freely.
