Consumers’ Research executive director Will Hild explains how the organization is calling out ‘woke’ companies in a new initiative with 30-second ads. YouTube Tips ⓘ
Consumers’ Research is a non-profit organization established in 1929 by Stuart Chase and F. J. Schlink after the success of their book Your Money’s Worth: a study in the waste of the Consumer’s Dollar that galvanized interest in testing products on behalf of consumers. Consumers’ Research published a monthly magazine called Consumers’ Research Bulletin. Consumers’ Research has headquarters in Washington, D.C., focusing on consumer issues and policy.
Leading staff from Consumers’ Research, thwarted in their efforts to establish a collective bargaining unit of a labor union, protested and left to form Consumers Union, which was founded in 1936. The magazine published by Consumers Union, initially Consumers Union Reports and now called Consumer Reports, gained popularity and market share over the Bulletin and largely supplanted its relevance.
