Schwab Social Security self interest to be targetted March 31 and April 1

The Ohio AFL-CIO and others are organizing protests at four Charles Schwab office in Ohio on March 31 and April 1 as part of a the unions' national day of action around Social Security:
Working families and groups concerned about retirement security will gather to demand that the Wall Street brokerage firm Charles Schwab withdraw its support for Bush's risky plan to privatize Social Security. Privatization would mean huge benefit cuts and enormous new government debt, and it would worsen the finances of Social Security.

The Charles Schwab Corp. is a major backer of the push to privatize Social Security accounts because it is well positioned to make huge profits managing private accounts. Schwab's support for privatization is a conflict of interest with the retirement security of its clients who have entrusted their savings with the firm.

Across the country, unite to tell Schwab: "Don't Pick Our Pockets to Line Yours!"
