This Bankrupt US City Wants To Experiment With “Universal Basic Income”
The [idiot] mayor of Stockton, California, is leading an experiment with “universal basic income,” which is set to start by giving low-income residents $500 a month, no questions asked.
[This is something out of George Orwell’s book “1984” that even Facebook’s Suckerberg has proposed.]
Mayor Michael Tubbs calls his city “ground zero” for issues like wage stagnation, rising housing prices and loss of middle-class jobs that affect the nation.
[The truth is that California is also “ground zero” for homelessness and all kinds of “evil”]
The Central Valley city went bankrupt in 2012, and for decades it has been trying to diversify its agriculture-based economy.
