    Congrats on great thinking. Excellent policy.
    Seemingly every second person agrees with above, but won't give you their party vote for fear of "wasting it."
    Hang in.

    Love how this policy has the potential to appeal to practically everyone on the political spectrum: liberals, conservatives, socialists, li
    bertarians etc.

    I fully support the UBI and hope it will be implemented for all NZ Citizens - therefore encouraging family units to stay together, getting rid of discriminatory WINZ policies that penalise mothers on the benefit who want to maintain a relationship with fathers of their babies... it would certainly encourage homeless and unemployed to live in communities pooling their resources, more would take on volunteering and caring for those unable to care for themselves... ppl would be available to take up part-time work to supplement their UBI... NZ needs this radical change! Past governments have proven that dishing up benefits has done nothing to improve the lives of the ppl they were meant to help and the policies created benefit fraud because ppl were desperate to find some way of providing for their children...
    I will support the TOP for this reason alone.

    I highly support the UBI option over the Labour and NZ First policies as I think this is far more realistic and achievable within our society. Students need support DURING their study, as we are not immediately affected by the cost of our tuition fees. To have unconditional support through being an adult will allow our generation to grow.

    Some decent policies. Have a read (not only of TOPs policies, but all) and make an informed decision!

    The current inequity inherent in the student allowances scheme needs addressing as children of a wealthy family who can demonstrate a low income, get student allowances while kids of those only making ends meet on a modest salary get nothing. The former will still benefit but so will the latter. The elimination of the compliance industry will significantly reduce costs, frustration and desperation. I believe this is a forward-looking policy which needs to go hand-in-hand with compulsory and sustained financial skills acquisition throughout school years - so more people will understand the implications of how they choose to use the UBI when they hit 18.

    I think that the UBI provides a great support for those starting out. There are risks that people will stay home all day and watch netflicks, but people actually want to get out and try things. This gives people the opportunity to study, to try start up a new venture, to volunteer for things and work out what they want to do with their lives, to go travelling and get a broader world view and to try unpaid work experience in areas that they want to explore. This boosts productivity in small businesses and creates a safety net for failure and experimentation.
