He also believed that the National Bank favored the wealthy citizens. He knew what it was like not to be the richest man in the world, so he shut down the National. The bank had four more years on its contract so Jackson secretly started to take money for it making it start to fail. He also knew that many of his followers were not the richest, and many didn't have jobs, so he fired everyone in the government and got his followers jobs in it.
