Rumble Pope Francis wrote an Easter letter to leaders of prominent social movements. He said they should consider a universal basic wage to help the economic disruption from COVID-19. The pope said: "It would ensure and concretely achieve the ideal, at once so human and so Christian, of no worker without rights." In his letter Pope Francis said some of the lowest-wage workers don’t benefit from existing labor protections. Spain is one of the many countries looking toward permanently establishing a universal basic income program.
