Sustainable Frome June Meeting: Universal Basic Income

Thursday, June 3 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

We will have a Universal Basic Income Conversation.

This is a thing that’s happening country wide.
UBI is a brilliant idea but is not well understood generally. The idea is to get people talking about it, spreading and exchanging knowledge and to start a groundswell of support and enthusiasm!

You can find out more about UBI here

But in a nutshell:

  • It would replace all unemployment benefits, but not housing benefit.
  • Every citizen would get it, regularly and unconditionally.
  • It gets rid of poverty traps and means work always pays.
  • It’s very simple, cheap to administer, and can be revenue neutral.
  • It tends to encourage flexible work and sustainable living.
  • Pilot schemes have not led to people giving up work, except to take up education or start small businesses.
