Today, I am proud to announce that we are the first bank in the United States to increase our minimum wage to $20 an hour for all full-time employees. By raising our minimum wage, we are continuing to honor our roots in the labor movement and to do our part in creating greater access and opportunity for our workers and their families.

Does it really matter if a bank is socially responsible?  Who cares what the bank does with your money, just as long as it is there when you need it?  We care. At Amalgamated Bank, we believe banking – and the entire financial sector for that matter – must be responsible for its social and environmental impact.

Today, we became the first bank in the United States to endorse the United Nation’s Principles for Responsible Banking. The Principles for Responsible Banking provide the framework for the sustainable banking system of the future.
