Radical St. Louis Mayor Tishaura Jones Implements Guaranteed Monthly Income Checks to 400 City Families as Crime Rate Soars


St. Louis Mayor Tishaura Jones, a committed leftist, signed the “Working Families Bill” last week authorizing free money to hundreds of St. Louis families on a monthly basis.

The “working families bill” will guarantee a monthly check to 400 St. Louis families living below the poverty level whether they work or not.


Meanwhile, there were 220 homicides in St. Louis in 2022 including 19 children.

KTVI reported:

Jones signed BB116, coined the “Working Families Bill” on Wednesday. This officially authorizes a program through which hundreds of St. Louis families in need of financial assistance will receive monthly $500 payments.

The pilot program is the first guaranteed basic income program within the state of Missouri. It is expected to support 440 families with $500 checks for 18 consecutive months, according to the mayor’s office.

“From creating better opportunities for our youth to expanding access to healthcare, this bill is an investment directly in our communities still struggling to get back on their feet,” said Jones via a news release.

The legislation approved Wednesday involves $52 million in ARPA funds, including $5 million for the guaranteed basic income program.
