Some Growing Options For No-fuss [cheap Flights] Tactics
Fife has been identified as having high levels of hidden or in-work poverty, with research by the TUC revealing more than 34 per cent of workers in the north-east of Fife earn less than the living wage. The radical economist Guy Standing is a leading campaigner for UBI and co-founded the Basic Income Earth Network (BIEN). Professor Standing, who published the book The Precariat: The new dangerous class in 2011, believes we must free ourselves of the notion that direct flights from chicago to mexico everyone has to work for a living, as technological advances will make many jobs redundant. He predicted that stagnating living standards and increasing non stop flights to hawaii job insecurity would lead to the rise of right-wing populism. He told The Guardian: The thing about Scotland is that they really understand the precariat. The sense of insecurity, the stagnating living standards, all of those things are clear in Scotland and the fact that so many within the SNP are supportive means theres a real opportunity to do a pilot in Scotland." Interest in universal basic income has been growing in Scotland, particularly since the Scottish National Party passed a motion in support of the policy at its conference last year. There have been successful pilot schemes in Africa and India, and the idea is becoming more popular in Europe, with a pilot currently running in the Netherlands and another set to launch in Finland this year. Many anti-poverty groups in the UK are in favour of UBI, and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has said that he and Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell are considering putting the policy in the party's next manifesto. Supporters believe it would create a fairer, less complex system than the current mix of welfare benefits as well as building a more family-friendly society which recognises that work includes caring duties. They also claim it would eliminate benefit fraud and reduce administrative costs, as well as improving health and happiness in people who would be free to study or retrain, safe in the knowledge of a basic income.
