In what is not news to anyone who hasn't already decided "fuck the poors", universal basic income doesn't entice people to quit their jobs and actually /increases/ part-time employment rates: futurism.com/basic-income-part

@noelle Personally, I'd even be OK with a bunch of people quitting their jobs.

There's a lot of jobs that I'd argue are a net negative to society (whether it's because it isn't positive enough to offset the emissions of the commute, or because the actual job itself is a detriment to society, or the worker is just so bad at their job that they hurt everyone else's productivity), but we have them because it's societally considered important to have full employment.
