New Zealand Parliament Pāremata Aotearoa

Petition of Harmon de Vos: Universal Basic Income for all New Zealand citizens

Published date: 2 Apr 2020

Petition request

That the House of Representatives pass legislation requiring all New Zealand citizens to be paid a universal basic income.

Petition reason

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the current economic downfall many New Zealand citizens are facing heavily reduced working hours or a loss of work completely. Some people are able to work from home but most are not. I believe we need a universal basic income now more than ever to get us safely through these harsh economic times.
