How was the referendum in Switzerland on 05.06.2016/XNUMX/XNUMX? What are its results?
Sometimes one gets the impression that the brains of our government and the government of one of the richest countries in the world are not working to their fullest or in the wrong direction.
But the consciousness of citizens is striking. Indeed, why those who do not work should receive on an equal footing with working citizens. I am sure that in our country this freebie would be supported, if not 100, but 90 percent for sure.
Receive 2260 euros and do nothing. Some can only dream of this.
I like countries where both the government and the people think in the same direction and not to fill their pockets at the expense of others, but to live with dignity in the country.
Swiss citizens did not support the introduction of an unconditional basic income in a referendum, with only 23.1% of the population supporting this initiative. It also supported changes in migration policy and did not accept the proposal to redistribute car taxes.
To be honest, I'm just shocked by the conclusions that can be drawn after the referendum held in Switzerland.
The main issue of the referendum was the proposed reform, according to which every citizen of the country, as well as a visitor, but who has lived in the country for more than 5 years, was provided with unemployment benefits in the amount of 2260) per month per adult, and 565 per child.
76,9% of those who took part in an important poll for the country spoke against such a freebie. The Swiss say that with such an allowance, the majority of the population will not want to work and the country will decline. This is the level of consciousness. Shock!
I can imagine what percentage we had rejected such a proposal, with such and such an allowance.
What a colossal difference in living standards.
A unique referendum was held in Switzerland, residents were asked if they wanted to receive more than 2 thousand francs just for being citizens of the country? Conscious Swiss prudently refused such a freebie, seeing in it a time bomb for the country. They decided not to stimulate parasitism in the form of an unconditional basic income, because no one wants to work.
