Bank Transfer Day Next Weekend

The Occupy Wall Street protest movement has attracted a great deal of press recently around the country.

A social-media-inspired event next weekend hasn’t received as much.

It’s called Bank Transfer Day, and its goal is to mark next Saturday, November 5th, as a day to move money from large banks to smaller institutions or to credit unions.

A 27-year-old California art gallery owner got the idea after what she says was years of mistreatment by a large, national bank.

So what may happen locally as a result of that?

We spoke with a local credit union about that and we’ll have that story for you this week on ABC 10.
