Woke - new benchmarks and challenges

Woke is a megatrend that is increasingly becoming the focus of society. It's no longer "just" about fighting racism, but more generally against discrimination and for more diversity. But Woke also deals with other topics such as the climate crisis. Here are some microtrends that emerged from this megatrend.

Basic income for trans* people

London Breed, the mayor of San Francisco has announced a program called Guaranteed Income for Transgender People (G.I.F.T.). In it, 55 low-income people who are trans* or non-binary will receive $1,200 for 18 months. People 18 and older who live in San Francisco and whose monthly income does not exceed $600 are eligible to apply. The background to the initiative is that 29 percent of trans* adults live in poverty. According to a 2015 survey, they are twice as likely to be unemployed and suffer homelessness more often compared to binary people.
