Third Thursday Films: TED talk - Poverty isn't a lack of character; it's a lack of cash

"Ideas can and do change the world," says historian Rutger Bregman, sharing his case for a provocative one: guaranteed basic income. Learn more about the idea's 500-year history and a forgotten modern experiment where it actually worked -- and imagine how much energy and talent we would unleash if we got rid of poverty once and for all.


Third Thursday Films are shown at 7pm at the GMP Local 244 Union Hall, 350 Hudson Ave, Newark, OH.  Each film will be followed by a discussion.  Film series sponsored by: The Licking - Knox - Muskingum Labor Council, AFL-CIO; The Glass, Molders, and Plastics Workers Union, Local 244.
