JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon

WASHINGTON — A janitor from Texas confronted JPMorgan Chase Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Jamie Dimon after he testified at a congressional hearing on Tuesday, according to the Huffington Post.

When lawmakers from the House Financial Services Committee wrapped up their own questioning of Dimon, janitor Adriana Vasquez got Dimon''s attention, asking the executive why she can''t earn a living wage working in the JPMorgan Chase Tower in Houston, the article stated.

"Despite making billions last year, why do you deny the people cleaning your buildings a living wage," Vasquez asked, according to her union, the Service Employees International Union (SEIU).

According to the article, after hearing Vasquez out, Dimon responded with, "Call my office."

Vasquez had traveled from Houston with the intention of posing her question to Dimon, and she was unsatisfied with his response, the article noted.

Dimon had been called before the House Financial Services Committee to address last month''s JPMorgan Chase trading loss of $2 billion, the article added.
