End Poverty: Basic Income Pilot in Dublin 2018

Help Dublin end poverty by launching a basic income pilot programme in 2018.

Dublin has over 4,000 homeless people as of 2017. Over 25% of all workers in Dublin are either poorly paid or on a non-permanent contract. Many permanent workers feel that the work they do are not contributing meaningfully to society. Many suffer from overwork and anxiety.

Basic income solves all of these problems by providing a social safety net for everyone regardless of age, gender, race, wealth and other factors. With basic income, each citizen receives a fixed amount of money to cover minimal basic needs such as food, clothing and shelter. This will lift families and individuals from their state of anxiety, overwork, poverty or homelessness and guarantee everyone a basic human right, the right to live.

Canada, India, the Netherlands, Spain, Finland and Scotland have already launched basic income pilot programmes and have produced positive results. The United Nations Development Chief of China has just released a report recommending China to implement basic income. The Silicon Valley in the United States is talking about launching their private basic income programme. And Bernie Sanders, currently the most popular politician in the United States, supports the idea for his home country.

Sign this petition to take a decisive step in solving Dublin's human problems and helping Ireland join the rest of the industrialised world.
