Description:

National Consumers League is America's pioneer consumer organization, founded in 1899 on the principle of consumer responsibility for the welfare of workers. NCL began as an organization of women devoted to workers' right.

NCL drafted the nation's first minimum wage law in 1912 to protect women and children, the most severely exploited workers.

NCL was among the first to champion the cause of child labor, campaigning for laws to protect against children working for long hours and pauper's wages.

NCL fought for the rights of African American workers in the early 20th century, including Black women, who were the lowest paid workers of all, at a time when they weren't represented by unions of women's organizations.

Today, NCL is the only organization whose mission links consumer issues and fair labor standards. NCL supports the Employee Free Choice Act, making a connection between consumer rights and labor rights on Capitol Hill. NCL joins with the Labor Movement in supporting comprehensive healthcare reform. NCL is a world leader in the fight against child labor. It co-chairs, convenes, and staffs the domestic Child Labor Coalition and serves on the board of the International Cocoa Initiative.
