Policy for the People. A "Cash Policy" can Help Oregonians Make Ends Meet

Show Notes

Policy for the People. Large scale experiments during the pandemic have given a boost to an old idea: addressing poverty and economic insecurity with cash & no strings attached. Hear from State Rep. Andrea Valderrama about the legislature's recent decision to send a one-time payment of $600 to low-paid workers in Oregon and OCPP Director of Policy Research Janet Bauer on the growing body of evidence showing that guaranteed income and other cash policies are effective at addressing economic insecurity.
