How a guaranteed income pilot program is helping some in Gary, Indiana


The city of Gary, one of the poorest in Indiana, is now one of the latest places in the U.S. to have a guaranteed income pilot program. One hundred and twenty five residents are now receiving an extra $500 a month with no strings attached. City leaders hope it will be a valuable tool in fighting the poverty that has gripped the city for decades. NewsHour Weekend’s Zachary Green reports as part of our ongoing series, ‘Chasing the Dream: Poverty, Opportunity and Justice in America.’
