I have no problem with capitalism. In fact, I love it. But I have a plethora of problems with payday lenders. They exist because traditional banking packed up the truck and moved to the suburbs in the middle of the night leaving the low/moderate income market wide open for legalized exploitation.
If you’ve ever been to our South City office, you know Amy. She is one of those “there you are” people, which says about all you need to know as it relates to why she’s considered a great employee and an even better person. She’s a long-timer with a passion for what we do for our members.
This blog isn’t about the Credit Union. It’s about love. Well, maybe it is about the Credit Union, because we surely do love our members!
In last week’s blog, I spoke about the “collective us.” As I said then, and it is worth repeating (actually, it is worth shouting from the mountain tops), I love the Credit Union staff. They deeply believe in what is good and true. I mentioned that the “collective us” stands up for what we believe to be right, and we defend it every day with our actions and passion. I described them as heroic in that they are changing and improving our community. Heroic, however, does not describe our desire to risk our lives driving to and from work.
