The worldwide Covid19 crisis means
It's time to introduce an Unconditional Basic Income for Everyone.
The Unconditional Basic Income would be enough money to cover everyone's basic needs.
The Unconditional Basic Income should be set at at least £1000 a month.
(Furlough is currently capped at £2,500 a month)
The Unconditional Basic Income would be paid equally to everyone, whether they are working or not working.
When the Unconditional Basic Income is in place
1. Everyone could afford to self isolate if asked to.
2. Anyone could start up a new business enterprise to create a "new normal" post Covid economy
3. End the inequality of furlough and SEISS. Where some get lots and some get nothing
4. Key workers are properly valued for the essential work that they are doing because they keep their Unconditional Basic Income on top of their pay packet.
5. End poverty.
