"company owners etc pay more tax which covers the UBI of the people they replace"

It sounds good in theory, but look at how well Apple, Google, and the like are doing at the paying taxes bit currently... They can spend far less than the cost of the taxes and generate ways to avoid them. Then add in the corruption of power, and the growth of bureaucracy, and I don't think many people would like the result.
