That's not UBI

UBI isn't a wage, it's a baseline income for all, just covering the basics. Unlike a means tested benefit there's (virtually) no administrative overhead, since that balance is naturally 'built in', and it doesn't discourage people from seeking work for fear of losing benefits.

Finland is reporting positive things from a trial.

Oh and don't forget to take UK employment figures with a pinch of salt.
