Golly, sounds fair

Well, this seems quite equitable -- Wells Fargo managed to help guide the country into an economic collapse as well as robo-sign and otherwise abuse tens, if not hundreds of thousands, of home owners out of their mortgages and only on occasion received a mild talking too.

But if you are but a worker for Wells Fargo, well, the rich -- especially when they come in the personhood of a large corporation -- are just better people than you:
Yolanda Quesada was fired when a background check revealed she shoplifted in 1972.
"[I'm] very good at what I do for Wells Fargo," Quesada says.

Quesada says she was a good employee, and has the pins, certificates and photos to prove it. But, her supervisor walked her out the door last week after more than five years of service at Wells Fargo...

Quesada says she worked in phone customer service and never handled cash.
Obviously her real problem was not working in management.
