Bad, Books, and Clothes: he Swiss are voting on a plan to end poverty forever. Step one: give every adult $33,600 a year, no strings attached. There is no step two.

Forget raising the minimum wage. This is much much better idea.</p> <p>The minimum wage could actually drop if we had basic income.</p> <p>But Americans would never go for it. Miserably slogging through 12 hour days and having businesses open 24/7 is too engrained in our culture.</p> </blockquote> <p>“BUT WHERE WILL THE GOVERNMENT GET THE MONEY?” screamed Joe Schmoe, slamming a meaty fist onto the table and getting mouth-froth all over the front of his greying tank top. “You libt*rds all think money grows on TREES!! HAHA!”<br/><br/>“But where will people get the incentive to work?!” Mindy Bindy cried, flapping her hands in front of her face. She’d had a fear of the unemployed lollygagging about ever since she was a child and her mother told her to be afraid of the unemployed lollygagging about. “You think people should get paid for <em>nothing</em>? I work <em>hard</em> for my money!”</p> <p>“But who will serve me?” grumbled Marty McMoneybags. “Who will make me feel important? Who will do my laundry and cook my food and stand in front of me wearing a plastic smile while I take out all my stress—because I <em>do </em>have a lot of stress, you know, being this rich is <em>stressful</em>—on them?” He paused and straightened out the piles of hundred dollar bills on the desk in front of him, then raised his two watery, outraged eyes up to the Heavens. “Lord, if there are no poor people, how will I know that I’m <em>rich</em>??”</p> </blockquote> <p>I laughed. This is perfect! Well said!</p> </blockquote> <p>The thing is, while I’m sure you could scrape up a few people who’d be willing to just float by on a guaranteed minimum income? For most people the choice to work would be a no-brainer. “Hmmm. I can get by on 33k a year, or I can take that part time job and make 48k… enough to move to a better apartment, maybe take the family on vacation. Sold.” Hell, most people would want to work simply because it gives one a sense of dignity and something to do with one’s time. (Speaking as someone who’s been unemployed, on extended sick leave, etc. in her time, the boredom and sense of isolation that comes with not having a job is almost as bad as the humiliation of having to depend on other people for one’s survival.)</p> <p>And with this system, part-time jobs and “non-skilled” jobs would be much more readily available because nobody would need to work two or three jobs just to stay afloat!</p> <p>Which would ALSO mean that employers and customers couldn’t shamelessly exploit employees the way they can today, because if losing a job weren’t necessarily a financial disaster, more people would be willing to walk out on jobs where they weren’t being treated with dignity.</p> <p>And if this also applies to students (and it should) then student loans would become much less of a problem, and fewer people would flunk out of school because of having to juggle studies and work.</p> <p>Far fewer people would be forced to stay with abusive partners, parents or roommates because they couldn’t afford to move out.</p> <p>And the thing is, all those people who suddenly had money? They’d be spending it. They’d be getting all the stuff they can’t afford now - new clothes, books, toys, locally-produced food, car repairs - and with each purchase money would flow BACK to the government, because VAT, also income tax.</p> <p>The unemployed and/or disabled wouldn’t need special support any more - which would also mean the government could fire however many admins who are currently engaged in humiliating - *cough* making sure those people aren’t getting money they don’t deserve. Same for medical benefits and pensions. And I’m no legal scholar, but I somehow imagine less financial desperation would lead to less petty crime, and hence less need for police and security everywhere?</p> <p>TL;DR Doomie thinks this is a good idea, laughs at those who protest.</p> </blockquote> <p>reblogging for more top commentary</p> </blockquote> <p><strong>They tried something like this out in Canada as a sort of social experiment, called Mincome. What they found was that, on the whole, people continued to work about as much as they did before. Only new mothers and teenagers worked substantially less hours. </strong></p> <p><strong>But wait, there’s more. Because parents were spending just a little more time at home and involved with their families, test scores increased. Because teens didn’t have to work to support their families, drop-out rates decreased. Crime rates, hospital visits, psychiatric hospitalizations and domestic abuse rates all dropped, as well. More adults pursued higher education. Those who continued to work reported more job flexibility and more opportunity to choose employment they preferred.</strong></p> <p><strong>Basically, now you can go prove to your asshole family members that society won’t collapse without poor people for you to feel better than.</strong></p> </blockquote> <p>*muffled sound of conservatives imploding in the distance*</p> </blockquote> <p style=""> I’ve reblogged this every time it’s come around but I’ve never seen the results of the Swiss election that the graphic reports. A quick websearch reveals June 2016 articles from the NYT and the WSJ reporting it was voted down. <a href="http://t.umblr.com/redirect?z=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.businessinsider.com%2Fhawaii-basic-income-bill-2017-6&amp;t=Njc3OTYxZmVhNTQ4Yjg1ZTFkYTEyYjRhNjE2NTVhNWYzNmNlZjAwOSxSNWk1cWlUOA%3D%3D&amp;b=t%3AUluXTA_SgrDo0CFfULkSYw&amp;p=http%3A%2F%2Fheroofthreefaces.tumblr.com%2Fpost%2F163634437213%2Ftank-grrl-hello-missmayhem&amp;m=0">But about a year later Hawaii voted it in</a>. <br/></p> </blockquote> <p>@nikkidubs I love how you make fun of those valid questions while not answering them. </p><p>If someone would like to tell me where the government will be getting <b>$10,979,362,732,800 a YEAR</b> to just hand out to people that’ll be great. </p><p>($33,600 x 326,766,748 people living in the US in 2018 = $10,979,362,732,800)</p><p>I like getting money for doing absolutely nothing too, but money has to come from somewhere or it’s worthless. </p></blockquote> <p>“Just give everybody free money and it’ll all work out!”</p>

Children, Life, and Love: Today......my daughter stole something. Yes, my sweet, perfect, and innocent little 4 year old girl took something from a store that she did not pay for..... Now, to be fair, this thing that she stole couldn’t have been more than a dollar....two dollars max, but I found myself conflicted about what to do. Should I let it slide like no big deal? Should I throw it away and simply tell her why that is wrong? Or......should I do the hard thing and be the parent even though I knew it would be hard, embarrassing, and emotionally difficult for my daughter? You see in 2018 we have too many parents that care too much about being their children’s friend. They care too much about shielding them from the real world and real consequences....... It’s not my job to be my daughters friend....it’s my job to be her PARENT! So we got in the car and went back to the store. I held my daughters hand as we walked back to the same cash register that we had just been to, and I stood by her as her little hand sat that tiny little toy back on the counter. I helped her deal with her little tears and walked her through the correct way of saying she was sorry and explaining why this was a big deal that can not be repeated. I watched as other people looked at us....and how some had some resentment towards me for doing this at all. I also watched as my daughter learned a lesson.....I watched as she grew just a little at that moment.....I watched her do the right thing! She won’t be little like this for long.....so I choose to love her enough to teach her what a good person is and does. I am a Father......a Daddy.....a Teacher✔️ The END *For my 4 year old daughter doing the right thing and standing up for what’s right......that little toy still came home with us. This time purchased the RIGHT way! daughter daddysgirl daily life truth
