Contributive income is a proposition of the French philosopher Bernard Stiegler, an ancient member of french's communist party, the PCF. It is described as an income given to people who engage in activities that has interest for the collectivity, whether this activities are already paid or not. It would then reward work of employees and the work of unemployed people. Contributive income is also complementary with basic income. It will apparently be experimented in a French territory called Plaine Commune.
