If you have that happening economy-wide, then you have put workers in a position where they have more bargaining power than employers. Employers would have to increase wages and improve working conditions. A UBI isn't the only way to do that. Obviously, we can do that through any number of policies, including things like requiring employers to provide health care or raise the minimum wage or requiring paid family leave for larger employers. But a UBI is another tool that would help get you there. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
