Banks are not fooling anyone
Member, Julie sent this in and I thought it should be shared:
It seems that banks would like us to believe that most pensioners are happy to engage in online banking rather than visiting a real live bank to be served by an actual bank employee! How wrong they are. I feel pretty certain that’s what the big guys of banking want us to believe because then they can do away with employees, thus saving themselves, the banks, money! And l think that’s what’s behind this shift in policy. It has nothing to do with our wishes or welfare, rather their own.
Like most pensioners l know, I want nothing more from banks than to be left alone:
- To be served by the usual friendly faces
- To go into a bank,
- To be provided with seating while waiting to be served
Let life get back to normal. Stop trying to kid us that our welfare is their concern by closing banks. Pensioners may be old but we’re not stupid!
I understand that banks are crying poor because their profits are down. I have a suggestion. Stop paying high end employees obscene bonuses (who already receive eye-watering salarie). If they did that their profits will soar once again. And furthermore, if they need a hand with how to manage their budget to achieve this end, ask any pensioner for a hand. We’re all dab hands at budgeting out of necessity!
