Troubles for Wells Fargo & Company (WFC - Free Report) seems to have no end. This time they come from a teachers union The American Federation of Teachers (AFT) demanding the bank to restrain itself from providing finance to gun dealers and the National Rifle Association (NRA).
After the recent tragic incident at a high school that took lives of innocent students and educators, AFTs President Randi Weingarten raised concerns over Wells Fargos connections with the gunmakers and NRA.
In a release issued on Apr 7, the union disclosed plans to discontinue the Wells Fargo mortgage program offering to members, if the bank fails to take an appropriate action. The union said, Were issuing Wells Fargo an ultimatumthey can have a mortgage market that includes Americas teachers, or they can continue to do business with the NRA and gun manufacturers. They cant do both.

The Un-American Federation of Indoctrinators can drop dead.
Teachers should be teaching about the US Constitution. Not working against it!
If the AFT believes it is constitutional to do this, then why can't a baker refuse to make a wedding cake for homos?
“...why can’t a baker refuse to make a wedding cake for homos?...”
The extreme hypocrisy of the radical anti-American left. Academia unions rank right up there with the MSM.
Given Wells Fargo’s past history of fraudulent loans and accounts, and its support for lefty causes, I see little here to get excited about. I hope both sides get screwed.
We need a Armed and Mad Patriots Bank and Trust and a Conservative Church of the Liberal Zombie Apocalyptic Crusaders.......
Another reason I’m glad I decided to depart the teaching profession decades ago. I was against teacher’s unions back then and still am. The unions support the Democrapt party and not the teachers themselves. Also, as a public employee, I could not see, in good conscience, to go on strike that would harm my students by closing the school.
Teachers unions were not created for the betterment of mankind, just for the teachers never to be fired, no matter what they do or what mindset they indoctrinate children.
Jimmy Carter is to blame for all of this by removal of the states right to educate the children within that state, under state-imposed guidelines, instead of federal guidelines.
We are seeing the ‘one-size-fits-all’ education mindset, and it stinks.
why can’t a baker refuse to make a wedding cake for homos?
Seeing where the US ranks in world education stats. this punk thug from yet another useless union with no value, obviously is spending more time being a social buttercup than an advocate for students.
I think it could be argued that students/staff with TB at public schools pose a greater risk to teachers than firearms, but does the union weigh in on the TB issue...?
