Wells Fargo, American Express, MasterCard, CitiGroup Bank, JP Morgan Chase, and Bank of America need to reveal their salary transparency to show that the women they employ aren’t earning less than their male counterparts. Throughout the years, women have always been minimized by the male population but over time we have progressed to making changes, with your help we can show how many women are impacted by this and together we can bring more attention to the problem and get women the equal pay they deserve. Natasha Lamb, the managing director of Arjuna Capital, was successful in getting seven major tech companies to reveal their salary transparency, proposing to close the gender gap in their companies. We want to do the same, but this time with the major bank companies. How much longer are you willing to wait for the government to realize the gap and make a definite change?

Dear Wells Fargo, American Express MasterCard, CitiGroup Bank, JP Morgan Chase, and Bank of America:
We, the undersigned, call on you to commit to salary transparency immediately to ensure that your female employees aren’t earning less than their male co-workers for completing the same work. You may have rejected this proposal from Natasha Lamb but now we, your customers, are demanding you release your employees' salaries to the public.
The gender pay gap is a problem because it impacts families and single women. On the average, women get paid 80 cents for every dollar their male coworkers make, which lowers their yearly income by $10,000 for the average worker. One out of two households depend on the female to be the main earner for the family. For single women, there's a better chance of being homeless because of the financial problems and debt they get into, and because of low wages, they are less likely to be able to afford to retire when they wish; they tend to work 10 more years than needed just to be able to afford retirement.
Reveal the salaries.
