In principal, you could eliminate minimum wage and people could work for any amount of money, considering that it is in *addition* to the basic income, in order to take home a bit more money, to gain needed experience, or just to have something to do. Minimum wage is actually a nasty regressive force on the most vulnerable. The main challenge to this type of system is that the average tax amount on people who work needs to be significantly higher than the basic-income amount.
