Switzerland to pay every citizen a living wage

2,500 francs a month for every citizen

““Imagine you are being born and society tells you ‘Welcome, you will be cared for, and asks you what you want to do with your life, what is your calling? Imagine that feeling, that’s a whole different atmosphere “ – Daniel Straub, Co-founder, Basic Income Initiative”

This sounds incredible. Citizens reinvest that money in their local economy, and each person can contribute based on their strengths, not dominant cultures definition of their ‘value’! What would this mean on our communities here on Canada?
