Public housing residents protested mayoral candidate Andrew Yang.
Public housing residents from multiple NYCHA apartment complexes turned out on Sunday to protest mayoral candidate Andrew Yang. He proposes a miserly universal basic income (“UBI”) plan that won’t be enough to pay for Obamacare premiums or your rent. What is worse, he plans to pay for his plan, in part, by “consolidating some welfare programs.” Amongst the social support that Mr. Yang would force recipients of his basic income to forego would include housing vouchers.
The New York Times has described his UBI plan as “a Trojan Horse” to shred the social safety net.
We can’t afford Andrew Yang as mayor !
