Hudson, New York is piloting a universal basic income program


Many cities across the country are beginning to experiment with the idea of a guaranteed income: an amount of money meant to address the basic needs of a person living in the U.S., distributed on top of regular income. In Hudson, NY, a small city of just over 6,000, a guaranteed income pilot has been running since October 2020. NewsHour Weekend’s Zachary Green visited the city to learn more as a part of our series “Chasing the Dream: Poverty and Opportunity in America.”
