After viewing the video, please respond to the following questions. You will notice that the assignment will touch on the material we covered previously.
- What would you do if, like Sandy Beck, your income suddenly dropped by two-thirds and you lost all your benefits?
- What sacrifices would you have to make?
- How different would it be if we had social protections like universal health care, secure pensions, job training and placement assistance, 80% unemployment pay, income supports for families, paid parental leave, and universal childcare?
- Would you be willing to pay 20% more of your income, like the Swedes do, to have all those benefits guaranteed to you?
