A pollster projects a huge defeat for a referendum in Switzerland on whether to introduce an unconditional basic income.
The proposal will be rejected by 78 per cent to 22 per cent, the gfs.bern institute says on Sunday.
The world's first such vote was aimed at guaranteeing every adult a minimum monthly income of 2,500 Swiss francs (2,535 dollars). Every child would get 625 francs. At the same time, it would foresee scrapping jobless, social and pension payments.
