This is outrageous, yet totally expected from the likes of Goldman Sachs…
Goldman Sachs employees better not think of grabbing lunch or taking in the scenery at Zucotti Park. “The firm” as it’s known among its workers hasbanned employees from going to the site of the Occupy Wall Street protests for any reason, CNBC reports.
As the protests, which started September 17 continue into their fourth week, Goldman Sachs employees are being told to stay away from the park, at least six Goldman staffers told CNBC. The staffers said they didn’t know whether the policy was official.
The ban on entering the the park is just one of many policies Goldman uses to try to keep its employees — and itself — out of the public eye. As of January, the investment bank had banned the use of Facebook, despite its $450 million investment in the social networking site, according to Fast Company. Goldman also banned its employees from commenting on popular Wall Street site Dealbreakerin 2008.
