Switzerland gives its citizens a monthly salary free of charge
The Swiss authorities have chosen the village of Rienau, with a population of 1,300, to apply the idea of granting the basic and unconditional basic income to every resident of the village.
Authorities set the unconditional basic income at between $ 640 and $ 2,600, depending on the age of the beneficiary, with people over the age of 25 receiving the maximum grant, the Sun newspaper reported.
This amount will be given to each resident of the town monthly, regardless of his job and the nature of his profession.
The town won the pilot project from 100 other towns, two years after nearly 80 percent of Swiss citizens rejected a proposal to provide basic income in a formal referendum.
It should be noted that the official minimum wage in Switzerland is about two thousand and five hundred Swiss francs.
