Today! Virtual march for Universal Basic Income! Get your own mini-marchers out now and tag with #woodstockbasicincomemarch when you post photos! Our mini-marchers are pictured here peacefully getting their message out at the Kingston Courthouse.

Automation has been reducing the need for workers world-wide. COVID put out of work Americans who were already struggling to make ends meet. When citizens who have had no income have to start paying back-rent or mortgages, the US population will struggle and the economy will take a bigger hit than it's taken so far.

Universal basic income, of just $1200/ mo is affordable for the United States government to provide, and would have benefits across the board. Small businesses could hire more people for lower cost if some of their basic needs were already met. Everyone could have a place to live at least in shared-housing and a have a little money for some food. And with everyone having some money to spend, businesses selling products would all benefit. This is a win for the population as well as a win for businesses.

Survival guaranteed, economic activity guaranteed, everything above that is gravy. (If you want more details on how this could actually work, read Andrew Yang's great book "The War on Normal People". The first half of the book is a miserable look at our future, which didn't look so nice before COVID, and the 2nd half is something we could do about it. After reading many books on what's wrong, how it got wrong, and some things that could help... this is the first book that I've seen where the solutions actually feel like they could work in 2020 America.)

If anyone says something about "It'll make people less likely to want to work." -- well... with automation and continually increasing efficiency... the USA in countless industries actually doesn't need more people to work. Let's guarantee survival first. Who knows where we can go once people aren't constantly fearing for their livelihoods!
