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

Re: RE: Richard

They are talking £60 a week!!!

What job do you do that you would be able to quit because the government paid you £60 a week?

40 hours at minimum wage of £7.50 is £300.

If someone is earning £60 a week, giving up their job because they got it off the government instead is not going to cause major ripples in the economic landscape. Hell, they are only working a day a week to replace it with £60.
