View social wage

The social wage is the right to enough income for living as determined by the basis of citizenship rather than employment. Key components of the implementation of a social wage would be Universal health care and a Basic income guarantee (BIG). Additionally, college aid, unemployment insurance, and retraining for fields with more opportunities is part of the social wage, as well as longer vacations and child leave.

The full implementation of the social wage would see the strengthening of programs such as college aid in addition to new programs such as BIG.

The components of the social wage are important in ensuring equal access to Emerging technologies and limiting the Digital Divide.

Unfortunately, some of the important elements of the social wage such as the basic income guarantee are not currently being seriously debated as a remedy for economic collapse.
