Wells Fargo profits at the cost of our communities:

*America’s Biggest Tax Dodger – Hoarding billions of tax dollars that should be paying for public services and putting America back to work

*Leads in Foreclosure – Continuing to foreclose on families in an economy it helped to ruin

*Predatory Lender – Targeting those who can least afford it with exploitive mortgages and payday lending,especially low-income communities of color

*Corrupting our Democracy – Protecting its profits by quadrupling spending on lobbying since the financial crisis began

*Prison Profiteer – Profiting from increased incarceration by investing heavily in for-profit prison corporations and anti-immigrant legislation
