Re: We already pay people to do nothing

Leave your job and go on benefits.
The amounts being suggested are similar, this is not being paid large sums of money "to do nothing", it's basic income to survive, paid to everyone to get rid of the large "benefits" administration infrastructure in most developed countries, and provide everybody with basic income for survival.
