We asked 5 college students: Would you recommend your financial institution to a friend?

first_imgCarly, 22, Wells Fargo: I would! Their mobile app is awesome.Mac, 19, Coastal Credit Union: I wouldn’t. I feel like I don’t love my bank enough, or I haven’t had a good enough experience that would make me recommend it. I’m not sure what it would take for me to start recommending it — I guess extra perks? It seems to me like all the banks are the same, and mine hasn’t really done anything to stand out.Chapel, 22, Fifth Third: I wouldn’t. My parents have used Fifth Third for a long time. That’s how I got into it, so I guess I trust their judgment. I feel I just don’t know enough about my bank personally to make a recommendation like that. Cy, 22, Fidelity: My bank slaps. No withdrawal fees for using other ATMS, very easy to open retirement accounts and stuff. I feel like they’re really helpful on all the stuff that’s important.Carla, 22, Wells Fargo: They’re really convenient and helpful and there aren’t any fees, so I guess I would recommend my bank? Even though I kind of question their values as a company.The average age of a credit union member is 47. What will that number be in 10 years? 20 years? One of the greatest challenges facing credit unions today is the question of bringing young people into the credit union movement.But what if we aimed higher than just attracting the next generation of members? What if you could turn your youngest members into active promoters of your credit union? After all — the best way to attract new members has always been through referral.Meet Zogo — we’re not a research firm or a market intelligence company. We’re a group of Gen Zers who believe in the credit union movement. In the past year, we surveyed over 500 college students. 76% of them didn’t even know what a credit union was – and we want to help.Together, we built Zogo, a gamified financial literacy app that helps credit unions attract and engage Gen Z. Since then, our app has won multiple awards, including the 2019 NACUSO Next Big Idea competition and the best of show at Finovate 2019. As Gen Zers ourselves, we know how to engage this demographic — and we want to get them talking about credit unions. At Zogo, we’re working to make finance fun, simple, social — and irresistible to younger generations. To learn more about Zogo and how your credit union can partner with us to build the next generation of members, visit our website at www.zogofinance.com or schedule a demo with one of our committed onboarding specialists. 2SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Bolun Li Bolun Li is a Junior at Duke University majoring in Economics.

Judge denies US women footballers immediate appeal of pay claim

first_imgUS women footballers will have to wait on their appeal against the dismissal of their equal pay lawsuit after a Tuesday ruling by federal judge Gary Klausner. US star Megan Rapinoe wears her jersey inside-out to hide the US Soccer Federation logo to protest for equal pay during the national anthem before a March 2020 SheBelieves Cup match against Japan in Frisco, Texas US District Judge Klausner had dismissed the players’ equal pay claim in their lawsuit against the US Soccer Federation in May. Lawyers for the women had asked him to enter a final judgment on that decision, which would have allowed them to take the case to the US Court of Appeals in San Francisco. But Klausner, who has scheduled a trial to begin September 15 on the players’ remaining claim of discriminatory work conditions, ruled that no appeal should go ahead before then – and that trial should not be delayed pending an appeal of the pay claim. “The granting of an immediate appeal will not eliminate the possibility of two trials or the possibility of successive appeals involving interlocking facts,” Klausner wrote Tuesday. “The court has declined the parties’ request to stay trial pending the resolution of any appeal. “And should a jury render a verdict unfavorable to plaintiffs on their remaining claims, there is no reason to think plaintiffs will not appeal that decision.” The US women, who clinched back-to-back World Cup wins with victory at last year’s finals in France, had based their claim for back pay in the disparities between prize money distributed by FIFA at the men’s and women’s World Cups. Klausner ruled in May that the women couldn’t prove pay discrimination because they had previously turned down an offer in Collective Bargaining Agreement negotiations to be paid along the lines of the US men’s team. He allowed claims of gender discrimination, such as discrepancies in areas of travel, housing and medical support to go ahead.

Mason City School Board to discuss issues related to special investigation

first_imgMASON CITY — The Mason City School Board this evening in a special session will discuss three issues that resulted from the special investigation by the State Auditor’s office that showed over $2.2 million was not properly disbursed during an eight-year period between July 2009 and August 2017. The three items to be discussed are: == The special investigation indicated several employees were underpaid during the investigation’s time frame. Payment to those employees will be discussed and considered by the board. == The overpayment by the Clear Lake Community School District back to the Mason City Community School District for services that were shared between the two districts between 2010 and 2016. The two districts have been working on determining how much the Clear Lake district was overbilled for all agreements, including the sharing agreement for Superintendent Anita Micich. Clear Lake was to reimburse Mason City for 40 percent of the total of Micich’s salary and benefits. == The State Auditor’s Office billed the district for a portion of the cost of the special investigation, with the board to discuss and consider payment. The board is also scheduled to approve the budget for the 2019-2020 fiscal year. The board meets at 5:30 in the board room at the administration center.last_img read more
