No, actually they're arguing the complete opposite.

If there are no jobs these people are qualified to do, but having robots doing it increases the productivity of society, the logical thing is to share some of that increased productivity with those unemployed people.

BTW, the revolution won't be a worker's revolution, because if you don't have a job, the title of worker isn't very accurate.

It's a good investment for a society, one with billions in tax revenue. It's not such a good investment for someone whose income will be limited or possibly nil if they're unfortunate.

It's not just about return on investment, it's about how much you're starting out with, something any decent investor realizes.
