More than a dozen protesters sporting a megaphone showed up during the noon hour at a Bend US Bank branch Friday. They were protesting what they call "greedy" practices of US Bank. Members of the Service Employees International Union are angry because the bank charges for subsequent ATM withdrawals from Reliacard. That is the card the state of Oregon uses to distribute child support and other payments. “They are only allowed to draw money out twice a month without a fee. Then it's $3.00 per withdrawel. The problem with unemployment is they could receive a check every week.” Spokesperson Bonita Williamson accuses US Bank of helping get the nation into the economic distress it is currently in, and now wants to make money of the backs of the unemployed.   A spokesman for US Bank says there are no fees for debit transactions with Reliacard and he says the program saves the State thousands of dollars by allowing funds to be electronically distributed to recipients.
