Universal basic income is a great idea, which is also why it won't happen

I realise that (and toyed with including it in my comment), but my logic was that a person may see the UBI as a good reason to jack in a job they don't enjoy for a similar income at home.

Arguably some people may see it as a good reason to keep doing a shitty job since it would act like a pay rise, but then may disincentivise asking for a pay rise instead.

There's a lot of factors...
