How so? Take someone that's being paid, let's say, $5000/month at the moment, and let's take a UBI of $1000/month to have a neat number to work with. With the UBI they'll be getting $6000/mo, but paying back $1000/mo for a net of $5000/mo. That's exactly what they were already getting, so where's the subsidy for the employer?
The $1000 less they have to pay the person to do that job because that component of their worth in the market is being met by the UBI not the employer.
The minimum wage is not the same thing. It is a required minimum amount the employer must pay, not a minimum amount paid by the public.
It's a good point. I quite like the general idea. None of this is going to be viable long term though, because we can automate all of these things too.
Yes. But there needs to be a transitionary step so the people who can't handle the idea of "getting something for nothing" can get their head around it (or die).
