Don’t Let Wall Street Buy America’s Best & Brightest.
Should Wall Street dominate the recruitment of America’s top young talent, draining the potential for innovative entrepreneurs and public servants?
Should college career centers accept large donations from Wall Street in exchange for special access to student recruitment?
Three years after the Great Recession, we are still experiencing a jobless recovery and need our most innovative and creative minds to build new companies, technologies, and industries.
Every year, however, up to 25% of graduates from top universities are hired to work for financial institutions – reducing our nation’s supply of job-creating entrepreneurs, scientists, and public servants, and weakening America’s economic dynamism.
Enough is enough: it’s time for America to stop the Wall Street brain drain.
Promote Public Service.
The financial services industry plays an important role in our economy, but it should not trump the nation’s most critical needs nor pay off career centers for preferred access to student recruitment.
We are concerned Americans joining together to say stop the special treatment for powerful banks and financial services institutions, and empower more young people to solve America’s greatest challenges.
