Basic income after automation? That’s not how capitalism works

I'm not paid a lot

I work in a factory. Traded stress for less pay, I'm financially poorer but happier.

Anyway - I'm not alone. There are loads of low wage workers in the western world. The obvious question is that if a basic income from the government covers the necessities of life...well...what exactly then is our incentive to even bother going to work?
