Save THE CHECKOUT from ABC cuts

Today the Checkout on ABC TV was killed off. At a time when consumer rights are significantly under threat by rogue businesses not complying with the Australian Consumer Law, now more than ever we need a program to inform consumers of their proper rights.

Last year the ACCC reported that consumer complaints rose by 39% to 29,000. This is only the tip of the iceberg as many consumers would not report their complaints.

The ABC has always been the unbiased reporter in the broader community interest. It is unlikely that commercial TV will air a program such as this because it would upset their advertisers. Therefore we need the ABC to keep airing this program.

Join with me to support The Checkout to ensure all 25 million Australian Consumers know their rights and are not ripped off.
