"We acknowledge the fact that it's not only people with families that matter but also people starting out in adult life who need support to help them reach their potential," says The Opportunities Party leader Gareth Morgan.
"The Opportunities Party is proud to release an unconditional basic income for those aged between 18-23 years old.
"For the first five years of adulthood, as people are striking out on their own, they have the security of $10,000 per year, no questions asked."
You get $200 per week ($10,000 per year) no questions asked, no hoops to jump through, no bureaucrats telling you what to do.
Under the TOP Policy if you are between 18-23
You get to decide the best way to use the money, to pursue your own goals.
You will be financially better off under our policies. This includes your mates who are unemployed, students, parents, apprentices, artists, entrepreneurs, etc. Like we said all your mates.
This will take stress off you at a pivotal time in your life. NZ has an appalling rate of youth suicide and financial stress plays a key role in this.
