A Stimulus Check That Comes Every Month?

The Compton Pledge is paying 800 families up to $600 per month to give them a leg up. So far, unemployment is down 50% and life is looking up for recipients and the community they live in. These privately funded stimulus checks aren't a replacement for welfare, but they illustrate the benefits of a functioning social safety net. In this episode, Laura meets some of the women who are receiving the funds and speaks with Mayor Aja Brown, as well as former Stockton mayor, Michael Tubbs, founder of Mayors for a Guaranteed Income. Also in this episode, Nika Soon-Shiong Executive Director of the Fund for Guaranteed Income and Co-founder of the Compton Pledge which on April 14, 2021 announced it had already distributed $1 million. Laura closes with a few thoughts on the racial wealth gap. If we can shrink it, why wouldn't we?
