No matter the size of our paychecks, we all deserve to have what we need to pay for our families’ everyday needs, from the cost of diapers to making the rent. But greedy corporate CEOs have jacked up costs while keeping our wages low, making it impossible to earn enough just to pay for the basics.
A guaranteed basic income (GBI) would get monthly cash payments directly to the people that need it most. By adjusting the payment to match the cost of rent in their area, a GBI will ensure that all Washingtonians can pay their bills and get the care they need.
Thank our lawmakers for hearing a bill that would create a two year pilot of GBI in Washington!
