Amanda Zimmerman thinks colleges and banks have ?messed-up relationship? that ends up leaving students heavily in debt when they graduate. ?I?m talking about the messed up relationship the U of M has with TCF bank. It?s really screwing weird! Why do you get a bank account when you get your college ID? ( A University of Minnesota student ID card doubles as a TCF ATM card thanks to a deal between the two institutions.) Those two things should not be friends with each other?, said Zimmerman who is with Students for a Democratic Society. That?s why Zimmerman, college students and supporters of OccupyMN last week urged people to move their money out of banks. ?Take your money out of TCF. Take it out of Wells Fargo and take it out of US Bank. Get a credit union people. It?s time to stand up for ourselves?, Zimmerman yelled to the crowd after it marched from the occupied Hennepin County Government Center Plaza to a nearby bank.
