Why do I support FCA? Because people deserve the information they need to make informed decisions, while the funeral industry is allowed to continue to operate in the dark ages…for their financial benefit.
In today’s world, when information is available on virtually anything with a click of a mouse or a tap on a screen, the funeral industry is not required to provide pricing on-line so consumers can compare prices, ideally when they are not in emotional distress.
FCA has been fighting to give consumers the information they deserve to bring the funeral industry out of the shadows and force them to disclose pricing without making it difficult for consumers. How hard can that be? With the industry pushing back, it is an ongoing challenge.
Those of us who care about competition and fairness must support FCA, so the organization can continue to fight on behalf of everyone who will eventually need these services, and that means each and every one of us.
