It’s time … for a universal basic income?

Free food, free drinks, free event!

Overland and friends at the National Union of Workers are hosting a lively debate on the topic of a universal basic income and whether it’s a solution to rising inequality.

Ready to battle it out on the night are co-founder of the Safe Schools Coalition Victoria, Roz Ward; writer, actor, academic and activist Gary Foley; former deputy prime minister Wayne Swan; and writer and presenter Helen Razer.

Overland’s deputy editor Sian Vate and the NUW’s Godfrey Moase will co-MC the night. There will also be readings from the edition’s contributors.

*Unfortunately Gary Foley can no longer attend. We’ll be announcing a fourth guest shortly.
