Former Grand Marais resident, Meggan Halvorson, has become an advocate for better working conditions at her workplace, the financial institute, Wells Fargo.

Wells Fargo has been under fire for some of its practices and the way it treats its customers. So much so that Wells Fargo CEO Tim Sloan was called before the U.S. House Financial Services Committee this week.

Meggan Halvorson joined a number of other Wells Fargo workers and the Committee for Better Banks to deliver a #WheelsAreOffWF petition to the Capitol, asking that something be done about the firm’s policies.

Meggan spoke at the worker rally at the Capitol and can be seen in the House audience as the CEO is being grilled by the Finance Committee.

WTIP caught up with Meggan when she got back to the Twin Cities, back at work at Wells Fargo, to hear about her experience. Here’s Rhonda Silence with more.
