News and viewpoint for working people and advocates

Workplace Fairness joins other worker's rights organizations in commenting on the proposed CFPB Debt Collection Rule.

"The undersigned organizations advocate on behalf of working people and write to comment on the proposed debt collection rule. We urge you to improve the rule in order to better protect low-income workers.
Debt collection is very much an industry built on low wage working families. Studies have described working families often having delinquent debt causing financial and psychological stress “with the pressure of being repeatedly contacted by creditors seeking repayment.”
We urge the Bureau to consider the disproportionate impact debt collection has on struggling families when crafting this rule."
