Sue McConnell, president of the Cleveland Better Business Bureau, spoke with America’s Work Force on March 2 to discuss the top scam from 2019.
McConnell said that the top scams of 2019 dealt with online shopping. People attempted to purchase items from foreign companies and either did not receive them, or the item was different than what they thought they purchased. She said that foreign companies do not follow the same rules and regulations that companies in the U.S. do, so she advised shoppers to be careful and do research before buying from foreign companies. McConnell also talked about phishing scams related to social security. The last scam that she discussed were phoney or shady businesses that troll job websites for resumes, trying to get people to sign up for their sham businesses.

He explained that the PRO Act will help workers organize and collectively bargain without being punished by their bosses. Gruenberg then talked about active shooter drills at schools in the United States. He said that they are traumatic to young children and that there has to be better ways to prepare a school for an active shooter emergency. Lastly, he talked about the litany of healthcare violations Chipotle is facing and the lack of training that employees had when it came to personal hygiene and work area cleanliness.
