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

Re: UBI is the future

"With UBI , you'd see the end of crummy employers treating their min wage workers as disposable scum, why, because they'd be able to go and find other low skilled work where the employers treat them as human beings."

There's nothing stopping those workers doing that now except the lack of sufficient better employers. I can't see why UBI should improve that situation.
