It would mean kids could start out on their own and have something to rely on.
Having a reliable source of income is stability that many don’t have.
It’s a privilege.
It’s time we give everyone that privilege.#UBI https://t.co/KQ2BzY4vmY

America has the HIGHEST income inequality among countries like Canada, France, the UK, & Germany.
Staggering inequality isn’t an inevitable outcome of running a 21st-century economy. It’s a result of policy decisions leaving too many people and places out. We must change course.

First we eat. Then we work. Not the other way around. UBI supports all work.https://t.co/zYPAdg3zQx
