On April 21st, 2012 Switzerland is starting a petition for a referendum on a basic income with a big party in Zurich. The referendum would establish the following principles in the constitution:
- the confederation installs a basic income
- the basic income allows the whole population a dignified life and full participation
- the law lays down funding and amount of the basic income
The petition needs 100,000 signatures to bring the referendum to a vote. The initiative follows the national motto: Unus pro omnibus – omnes pro uno (all for one and one for all).
