Why Basic Income? This video was created for community forums on basic income. Living in poverty in Prince Edward Island is not pretty, and it is not necessary. Hear the voices of Prince Edward Island women talking about their experience living in low income. See photos of “our reality” taken by Prince Edward Island women who are seeking a good livelihood. Find out why we need a basic income guarantee for Prince Edward Island. With thanks to Basic Income promoter Rob Rainer for quotations from women and Women’s Network PEI Paths to Prosperity Community Changers for their photos.
