RT @ryanjreilly: MUELLER’S FULL REMARKS https://t.co/YXssfSVn6n
For some reason @Chase caused a massive bank error today. I now have $-130 in my account and no savings. They can’t promise there won’t be fees or charges from transfering funds 3x. I also can’t use any of my cards until it is fixed or I will get a $5 - $25 fee per transaction.
 
I know this will all be fixed and worked out. I have the time and energy to ensure it gets fixed. I work with people who will gave me the time and space to fix it. I am surrounded by people who will support me.
 
I am currently stressed, frustrated, a little scared, a lot angry, and really nervous. I also have hope.
 
Now imagine someone else. Someone who immediately lost thousands of dollars. Someone who doesn’t have hope. There are hundreds of thousands of people in this state who are in this sort of spot. There are millions of people in the US. There are billions in the world.
 
This is a moment that I am trying to find solace in @Chase’s massive mistake. I am trying to take their blame shifting in stride. I am trying not to let them run the clock out on fixing this problem. I am feeling very fortunate too.
 
Today is a reminder that corporations are incentivized in a way to make money not do good. @Chase doesn’t have to do a thing to fix this problem they created. They need to collect as much money for shareholders as possible. That pushes billions of people aside.
 
When people talk about regulations or supporting others, this is a small taste of why. Capitalism doesn’t care about you. It is about maximizing profit. That is why we need good people to lead. That is why we all need a support network.
 
And yes… I am very very pissed off right now. Okay…. end rant.

There is no reason to work yourself to the point of breaking. None. If you are in a bad situation, share with friends, lean on your network, and get out. The World Health Organisation recognised 'burn-out' as medical condition. Your health matters. bit.ly/2I4Y2dA
