Finland's government is drafting plans to give every adult citizen a basic income of 800 euros a month to simplify the country's benefit system.
The country's prime minister has said, "For me, a basic income means simplifying the social security system."
And a poll conducted by the government agency behind the basic income proposal found 69 percent of citizens support the plan.
