Consumer Bill of Rights

By Brady Ramker

One of the Consumer Bill of Rights is: the right to be informed.

The right to be informed means that businesses should always provide consumers with enough appropriate information to make an intelligent choice. One example of the right to be informed is that a business says on a box of mac and cheese that the Mac and cheese is original flavor.

Another of the Consumer Bill of Rights is: the right to be heard.

The right to be heard means the ability of consumers to voice complaints and concerns about a product in order to have the issue handled effectively and responsively. One example of the right to be heard is if a consumer has a complaint about the food they have the right to complain about the food to the company.

Another of the Consumer Bill of Rights is: the right to choose.

The right to choose means that consumers should have a variety of options provided by different companies from which to choose. One example of this Consumer Bill of Right is that people have the choice to shop at Walgreens, Walmart, Target, or other places.

Another of the Consumer Bill of Rights is: the right to education.

The right to education means that consumers should be able to acquire knowledge and skills needed to make informed and confident choices. One example of the right to education is a person is at school and in a class they learn about skills to make confident choices.

Another Consumer Bill of Rights is: the right to safety.

The right to safety means to be protected against the marketing of products and services that are dangerous to health or to life. One example of the right to safety is on some toys the label has a choking hazard warning for people under a certain age.

One more Consumer Bill of Rights is: the right to service.

The right to service means to ensure better service for the consumer. One example of this right is an advertisement for a new T.V. tells the consumer about the total cost and interest rate.
