Employee who publicly demanded raise from CEO leaves firm

Departure

A Wells Fargo employee who made national news last year when he copied thousands of his co-workers on an email asking CEO John Stumpf to give all of them a raise is moving on.

The Charlotte Observer reports that Tyrel Oates, who worked in Oregon processing Wells Fargo customer requests to stop debt-collection calls, said he emailed Stumpf a letter of resignation on Friday.

Oates, 31, told the newspaper he is leaving the bank so he can devote more time to studying for a planned career in agriculture.

In his resignation letter, Oates criticizes the company for its 'complacent stance' on his request last fall that the San Francisco-based bank give each of its employees a $10,000 raise. According to the resignation letter, about 5,000 people, including Wells Fargo employees and customers, signed a petition supporting his proposed raises.
