Maybe his canned corporate BS works on other shareholders, but Natalie Clarke isn't other shareholders.

Natalie Clarke, 14, came to Bank of America’s annual shareholder meeting last week in the bank’s headquarters city of Charlotte, N.C., to ask Mr. Moynihan to “take an honest look” at whether the bank is paying women fairly...At the meeting, Mr. Moynihan praised Miss Clarke for speaking up for women, and the bank’s head of human resources also complimented her after the meeting. Mr. Moynihan said that the bank pays men and women fairly. He spoke about the number of women on the bank’s executive committee and board, and joked that they “would not let me not pay them fairly or pay their teammates fairly.” Miss Clarke thought that Mr. Moynihan sidestepped her question, focusing on women in top management when Miss Clarke wanted to know more about how rank-and-file women are paid. He also flubbed her name and accidentally called her Amanda, the name of a previous speaker at the meeting. “He answered a question, but it wasn’t the question I asked,” Miss Clarke said in the interview. “I’m not concerned about the compensation of the executives. I wanted to know about a teller or a project manager.” Miss Clarke plans to pen Mr. Moynihan, telling him she found his answers unsatisfactory.

Layoffs Watch '12: Brian Moynihan Wasn't Joking About Cutting Thousands Of Employees

Would've been quite the gag but no, he was serious, in case there was a question in anyone's mind. Wall Street workers got another warning shot across the bow as the nation’s biggest banks gear up to report third-quarter results beginning today. Bank of America chief Brian Moynihan yesterday said that he planned to make good on a springtime plan to cut a whopping 30,000 workers from the sprawling Charlotte, NC-based bank’s work force. “As we continue to get through the mortgage issues at Countrywide, you’ll see the head count come down substantially,” Moynihan told Bloomberg Television. Moynihan has been struggling to put the lumbering bank on a diet and shed nonessential businesses and workers in an effort to reverse the course embarked upon by his predecessor, Ken Lewis. The former CEO hastily gobbled up mortgage giant Countrywide Financial and Merrill Lynch at the height of the financial crisis. In a plan dubbed “New BAC,” Moynihan’s pink-slip program will trim 10 percent from its work force of 275,000. [NYP]
