Celebrate International Credit Union Day and ditch your greedy big bank
I ditched my account with a big bank 20 years ago. Credit unions are owned by their customers. No ridiculously high fees, no outrageous salaries for CEOs, and all the profits go back to you and me - the depositors.
Here's a bit more about International Credit Union Day:
"International Credit Union (ICU) Day® has been celebrated on the third Thursday of October since 1948. The day is recognized to reflect upon the credit union movement's history and to promote its achievements. It is a day to honor those who have dedicated their lives to the movement, recognize the hard work of those working in the credit union industry and show members our appreciation.
The ultimate goal is to raise awareness about the great work that credit unions are doing around the world and give members the opportunity to get more involved. Credit unions and associations throughout the world celebrate the day with fundraisers, open houses, contests, picnics and parades."
