What Sharing Can Do

Posted on 13 March 2020

 
 

If we had a Universal Basic Income:

  • People could afford to stay home if they have caught the coronavirus.
  • If we are hit by a recession, people will have a safety net with which to pay rent/mortgage and keep paying their kids school fees, as well as just keeping food on the table until things are sorted out.
  • We could quickly transition to green industries without a loss of livelihood between old and new jobs.

I’m all for a jobs guarantee and a Green New Deal, but it must be combined with genuine safety nets such as UBI.

Peace and kindness,

Katherine
