Oregon Considering Monthly $1,000 Payments For Homeless Population

Oregon seems to be jumping on the Universal Basic Income bandwagon!

Los Angeles, California, USA
  • Oregon is considering giving its vast homeless and low-income population $1,000 in no-strings-attached cash.
  • The bill was proposed last month by woke State Senator Wlnsvey Campos – who was among those calling to abolish the police in the summer of 2020 when the city of Portland was besieged by protesters – and Rep. Khanh Pham.
  • The Oregon payments would last until January 2026 and cost the city at least $14.6million-a-month based on current homeless figures.

  • In reality the cost would be even higher – the bill also proposes that any household spending more than 50 percent of monthly income on rent should also be eligible.
