Our Austrian member, Diakonie Österreich (Diaconia Austria) has launched a campaign to address common misconceptions which undermine effective action towards the establishment of adequate minimum income schemes.
A dedicated section on Diakonie Austria’s website provides a ‘fact check’ of key arguments often made (‘it will remove any incentive to work’, ‘the state cannot afford these schemes’, etc.), and provides a clear and concise response, supported by infographics. The campaign is disseminating its central messages both via the social media and through post cards.
