Basic income as experiment in Finland, starting 2017 until 2019


Jobless people generally cannot earn additional income while collecting unemployment benefits or they risk losing that assistance. This will be different now.Whether they find work during that period, the money will keep coming in at the beginning of each month, a trial version of basic income. By handing out the money to everyone, regardless of their income status, UBI advocates say the system prevents people from falling through the cracks. The experiment will provide clues about how people behave when they’re receiving free money. It’s expected  they’ll actually use the money to make their lives better. The current experiment is tax-free .Many of the people participating in project will be probably recently laid-off workers from Nokia, even if the government plans to randomly select them.
