The Biden-Harris administration is working to cut the junk fees costing Americans billions every year.

Junk fees

"Junk fees sneak added costs past consumers looking to save money. The FTC defines junk fees as "hidden and bogus fees that can harm consumers and undercut honest businesses. Whether buying a concert ticket, booking a hotel, or choosing a new bank, junk fees may add to the advertised cost of the goods and services you’re shopping for. When looking for the lowest price, honest businesses that share the true cost are often undercut by businesses advertising a lower price and tacking on additional fees later. 

The FTC received over 12,000 complaints from American consumers in 2022 who were at wit's end with hidden “junk” fees.  To combat this, the Federal Trade Commission has proposed a new rule that could make pricing more transparent across the board. The FTC proposed a new rule last week that could impact the entire economy if approved." - Kiplinger

The only power working Americans have is their ability to organize and vote when billionaires have rigged the system and bought political control.

Biden-Harris administration acts to cut junk fees

The White House Competition Council, President Biden called on all agencies to reduce or eliminate hidden fees, charges, and add-ons for everything from banking services to cable and internet bills to airline and concert tickets. These so called “junk fees” are not just an irritant – they can weaken market competition, raise costs for consumers and businesses, and hit the most vulnerable Americans the hardest. - The White House
