20 MILLION, BASIC INCOME TRIALS NOT LOOKING GOOD IN WALES OR IS IT?

936 Views

⁣The Welsh Government was accused of wasting taxpayers' money in FEB 2022 after unveiling a £20million basic income scheme ( social credit scheme trial ) that will offer hundreds of teenagers £1,600 a month without the need to work.
In what is one of the most generous schemes of its type in the world, 18-year-olds leaving the care system will be eligible for the payments for two years, amounting to a salary of £19,200 before tax.
It is estimated that up to 500 will be able to apply to the programme, where the money is put in their bank accounts with no demands on what they do to earn it or how it is spent.

The cash is equivalent to 70 per cent of the average salary in Wales, which was 562.80 a week or £2,251 a month in 2021.

$$ Billions ALL THE TIME ,All the governments in the West waste $BILLIONS all the time - I'm glad for once money Wasted is actually going to people in the public not Business companies such as the War Industrial Complex , Trans so=called Non Profit ( other than their enormous salaries of course ) Organisations etc. I'm also glad to see the ufortunate teen-agers who just come out of Care Homes , and in under=privileged situations are getting priority. People WILL suffer mass employment from Robotics and AI Take-over of jobs - at least they're planning a higher form and amount of social security , whether or not you agree with UBI .
