The power to refuse to work until your conditions are met is called bargaining power. The unemployment insurance boost is providing that power temporarily. Unconditional basic income would provide that power permanently, and unlike UI, would be kept in addition to wages vs. lost. https://t.co/LwGdmcVPB1

Direct cash policies put people in charge of revitalizing their regional economies.
Universal Basic Income would expand the buying capacity of current residents rather than subsidizing businesses that are theoretically attractive to new residents.https://t.co/Thm4OqUsUc

I’m having a heck of a time getting Google translate to work on news coming out of Chile about emergency basic income there. Can someone please let me know the details of what’s going on? I see talk of an amount that’s 100% of the poverty line to 100% of registered households…

This is the richest country in the history of the world — aging in America should not mean having to choose between paying for a hearing aid and paying for basic necessities like food. We must expand Medicare to include hearing aids, eyeglasses, and dental care. https://t.co/RdcvjI40ov

Ending cancer is a great goal to work towards, but that’s going to take some decades. Another big goal that is within our power is ending poverty, and we can do that immediately with the stroke of a pen.
Let’s invest in everyone with universal basic income.#PresidentialAddress

Hawley wants to provide a refundable tax credit to adults with kids. If fully refundable to everyone, this would be a basic income for parents of $ 6k/yr ($ 12k for couples). However, he wants to prevent anyone earning less than $ 7,540/yr from receiving it.https://t.co/vcW7uIzxJX

I just emailed my MP and asked them to support Bill #C273, Canada’s first ever #BasicIncome bill. This bill would force our government to create a national strategy for a Guaranteed Basic Income. Will you join me?https://t.co/vPYSEiap1a@ubi_works #ubiworks
