Dimon said the bank will probably seek to claw back pay from executives responsible for $2 billion in trading losses.

An update to last week's blogpostabout the Houston janitor who parodied "Call Me, Maybe" with "Call Me, Jamie."

Adriana Vasquez says JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon promised to call her after she confronted him about low pay at a congressional hearing.

Vasquez's union, the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), claims she tried to call repeatedly and never got anywhere. JPMorgan told us she never called and resisted its attempts to reach out to her.

Well, somebody finally called somebody, and somebody picked up the phone.

The SEIU has released an update saying, “Earlier today, Adriana Vasquez met with a senior official at JPMorgan Chase to discuss the crisis facing Houston janitors, currently making just $9,000 annually. The conversation was productive and opened up a constructive dialogue that both parties hope will lead to a better relationship."

Ok, so Jamie didn't call, but at least someone from the bank met with Vasquez, even though the company doesn’t hire the janitors who clean its offices and has nothing directly to do with their pay.

Still, happy-ish endings are possible!

Now if they can just do something about their choreography.
