The proposal is to implement[u]The m-program that restores the main characteristics of the project that has become a world reference in the fight against hunger and child labor and which is more innovative in extending citizenship guarantee to the most vulnerable groups. A program guided by the principles of increasing coverage, on the basis of appropriate income levels, will enable a phased transition towards an inclusive system and basic income for citizens.”

Simone Tibbett also addresses the concepts of minimum income and income transfer in her government plan. The goal is the challenge: to “eradicate extreme poverty”.

See the main points:

Permanent Income Transfer: Tibbett says he will focus on families who need them most and link the receipt of values ​​to “studying, preventive health and up-to-date vaccinations.”

She says this program will have “greater focus and support for the most vulnerable families, enhance health conditions, education and social assistance for beneficiaries, and encourage access to the labor market, employment and income opportunities.”

Minimum income: The senator cites “minimum-income benefits”, which, in her opinion, are aimed at eliminating extreme poverty, taking into account family composition and insufficient income.
