  1. ^ Supports the federal minimum wage being $12 and a $15 minimum wage being implemented in "high-cost cities".
  2. ^ Proposes a massive expansion of earned income tax credit, which has been described as a related policy proposal to basic income. However, the EITC is not basic income, it is two different welfare models.
  3. ^ Pushes for a Basic Income as opposed to a livable wage, although Yang states that whether states should increase minimum wage or not depends on economy and budget.
