Chuck comes from the middle class and works for the middle class, and those working to get there. Their stories have inspired him to champion protection for consumers throughout his career. He has led the charge against predatory lending, fought for enhanced protection of consumer transaction data, demanded greater disclosure of fees and surcharges in foreign wire transfers and passed into law the “Schumer Box,” which requires greater disclosure on credit card statements. He has fought against: ATM fees imposed by banks; defective rental cars; abusive practices by retailers that offer gift cards; and worked to protect families from unsafe consumer products, such as the use of toxic flame retardants and bisphenol-A (BPA) in children’s products.
