A universal basic income guarantee (UBIG) is one of the best tools available to reduce poverty, hunger, and destitution. South Africa has persistent and increasing unemployment and a large social protection gap excluding income support to those aged 18-59 years. It is necessary to provide an additional form of social assistance which is not linked to precarious forms of wage labour. In this webinar we discuss the IEJ's recently published policy brief which puts forward proposals for the design of a UBIG. Research conducted by the IEJ shows that with smart, but relatively minor modifications to our tax system, a UBIG can be financed.
