Swiss basic income

An excerpt below from this article. But the Swiss vote on the referendum will likely not pass. It should be noted that the interview also knows it will likely not pass the first time around but it opens the dialog.

“Switzerland is the first country to vote on unconditional basic income; its national referendum is June 5, 2016. The Swiss initiative proposes an amendment to its constitution that would give all members of the population a more dignified existence and the ability to partake in public life through a guaranteed basic monthly income. Though the amount of that income is not specified in the initiative, the sum being discussed is 2500 Swiss francs for adults and 625 francs for children under 18 (amounts that would be roughly equivalent in U.S. dollars).”
