    Rust-Oleum Sued After Product Fails To Work As Advertised

    Your home is likely going to be the biggest investment that you ever make. And whenever you’re doing a home improvement project or making repairs, you want to make sure that you do the best possible job or you hire the best possible people with the best possible products to make sure you don’t have to go back and redo that job in a few weeks, months or even a couple of years. But unfortunately some of the products out there are far inferior to others on the market and consumers are getting scammed. And I’m joined now by Scott Hardy with Top Class Actions to tell us about one…

    Facebook Settles For $550 Million Over Collecting User Data

    Finally tonight, some good news. Facebook has agreed to a settlement of $550 million after the company was sued for illegally harvesting facial data of its users. This data was taken and stored by the company without the user’s consent or knowledge. This lawsuit was about to head to trial in Illinois after the Supreme Court refused to grant Facebook’s request to halt the trial. So rather than facing the possible $35 billion in liability the company projected, they decided to settle. Facebook is not the only tech company harvesting your personal data. Amazon’s been harvesting biometric data through their Ring brand of security cameras and sharing it with law…

    Andrew Yang’s Best Proposal That No One Is Talking About

    Those of you who’ve been watching ring of fire, uh, regardless of how long you’ve been watching, really, uh, it’s probably no secret that I’m not a huge fan of democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang. I have criticized his UBI proposal mainly because of the fact that his, uh, mechanism for paying for UBI simply doesn’t work and it’s going to pass the costs onto the consumers with his VAT tax. That doesn’t work in practice, but I do believe in giving credit where credit is due. And I think Andrew Yang does have some decent proposals. He also has one absolutely phenomenal proposal that has nothing to do with…

    TikTok Sued For Collecting Kids’ Data Without Consent

    The TikTok app has been around in some form or fashion for at least the last five years, but in recent months has once again surged in popularity. And unfortunately as we’ve seen all too often with these apps, especially those geared towards younger children, it appears that they are taking user’s data and not protecting that data, without consent. Joining me now to explain what’s happening is Scott Hardy with Top Class Actions. And Scott, again, we’ve seen this huge resurgence in the last a month or so of TikTok. People love posting these things on other social media networks and kind of like all the other app stories…

    Amazon’s Whole Foods Sued Over Deceptive Labeling

    Sometimes companies like to get creative with how they hide what’s actually in their products. For example, maybe they don’t want to say high fructose corn syrup, they just say sugar. Or maybe they don’t want to say sugar and they say something like, organic dehydrated cane juice solids, which that phrase sounds like, hey, maybe that’s something that’s healthy. It’s organic, it’s cane juice. I’m sure there’s nothing wrong with it. But according to a new class action, that very phrase is used by Whole Foods on their brand of oatmeal to simply mean one thing. Sugar. Joining me now to talk about this is Scott Hardy with Top…

    Amazon Workers Get Hurt At A Rate Of FOUR TIMES More Than Other Factory Workers

    Well, folks, we’re pretty much just hours away from black Friday madness, right? Everybody’s going to forget that they had just given thanks for all the good things that happened to them over the past year, hoping for better days in the in the future, and they’re going to go out there. You’re going to spend all your hard earned money on things that aren’t actually even a deal because technically if you wait according to statistics, you get better deals later on as the holiday season gets closer. But sure, whatever. We’re going to go out there and we’re going to spend a lot of money, but for those…
