SWITZERLAND: Basic income on the agenda of big political party and trade-union

The Socialist Party of Switzerland (2nd party of the country in terms of seats in the Federal House of Representatives) has decided to include basic income in its new long-term platform, a platform which should inspire its action for the next decades. Furthermore, quite independently, one of Switzerland’s main trade-unions, SYNA, has also adopted a resolution asking for the implementation of an “unconditional basic income”.
