Stockton Introduces Basic Income Program…4 Years After Exiting Bankruptcy

Uh oh, somebody forgot to cut-up Stockton's credit cards.

A team of independent researchers will pick 100 people to receive the money. The purpose is to study how an extra $500 a month impacts people’s health and stress level. Researchers are also looking to see if people feel financially secure.

The plan kicks-in early next year, just four years after the city exited bankruptcy in 2015. California Über Alles!
