Don’t Let Wall Street Buy Government Officials
Demand that Goldman Sachs, Citigroup and Morgan Stanley Drop Their Opposition to Shareholder Transparency Proposals
Banker Antonio Weiss — who President Barack Obama nominated to a high position in the U.S. Treasury Department — was offered a $21 million bonus by his Wall Street bosses to go to work for a bank regulator in Washington, D.C.
Now, outraged shareholders are insisting on transparency from some of the biggest Wall Street banks that reward executives with multimillion-dollar “golden parachutes” for taking bank regulation jobs.
But the bank CEOs — who don’t want to answer any questions — are trying to block these important reforms.
Add your name to the petition demanding that Goldman Sachs, Citigroup and Morgan Stanley drop their opposition to shareholder transparency proposals.
Petition to Goldman Sachs, Citigroup and Morgan Stanley
We, the undersigned, call on you to drop your opposition to shareholder proposals for transparency regarding so-called “golden parachute” bonuses for executives that leave your financial institution for powerful government positions. Let shareholders vote for greater transparency in executive compensation practices.
