Andrew Yang: Paying People $1,000 for Doing Nothing Will Create ‘2 Million Jobs’

‘The freedom dividend is pro-work’


YANG: "Well, the Freedom Dividend is actually very pro-work, because putting this money into Americans' hands, that money would circulate over and over through their neighborhoods and communities. It would create more than two million jobs around the country and would also recognize a lot of the work that's being done in our families and communities that is not being recognized by the market. Which includes people like my wife, who is at home with our two children, one of whom is autistic. And right now the market values her work at zero. So the Freedom Dividend is actually very pro-work, it would create jobs and would create opportunities for many more Americans to be able to do the kind of work that they want to do in their communities every day."
