Last month it became known that Wells Fargo had allegedly held a series of bogus fake interviews with nonwhite, non-male job candidates in order to satisfy the company's ruthless diversity metrics:
Just absolutely humiliating. You think that'd be bad enough. But apparently it made the Biden administration real mad:
Federal prosecutors in New York have opened a criminal investigation into whether Wells Fargo violated federal laws by conducting sham interviews of minority and female job candidates, according to two people with knowledge of the inquiry.
The investigation is being conducted by members of a newly created civil rights unit inside the criminal division of the Manhattan U.S. attorney's office, the people said. They requested anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly.
The investigation, which is in its early stages, was spurred by a May 19 report in The New York Times that centered on a whistle-blower, Joe Bruno. Mr. Bruno, a former Wells Fargo employee, and others said bank managers were interviewing job applicants whom the bank deemed "diverse" — a catchall term for racial minorities, women and members of other disadvantaged groups — for roles that had already been promised to other people.
All of us to Wells Fargo right now:
Pro tip: Before holding a bunch of insulting fake interviews and wasting the valuable time of prospective candidates, check the big ol' federal register and make sure you're not violating any national laws first!
I doubt the interviews the federal government will soon be holding with Wells Fargo will be fake!
