@AC .... "For a single parent without a job - they will still be destitute."
True, but if they can get someone to look after their kids for a few hours (like when they are a school) they would be able to earn something without loosing the benefit. Currently they have no incentive to earn anything as the withdrawal of benefits gives the same result as a 100% marginal tax rate. With UBI, working when they can makes them less destitute.
