Why should I pay for the Unconditional Basic Income through my taxes?
An Unconditional Basic Income will emancipate the labour force, by freeing them of the need “to take any job because they have to put bread on the table”, enabling every worker to choose the work they want to do and the rate of pay they are willing to work for.
Supply and Demand will set a true free market rate for every wage.
If your job is vital to society or has a lack of people willing to supply labour to do that job, then your wages will rise.
If your job is not vital or deemed less necessary by the true free market, then not only will your wage fall, but it means that your current wage is effectively being subsidized by todays society, because without an Unconditional Basic Income, todays ecomomy is not a true free market.
Many people today are in jobs, being paid an inflated wage, that already comes out of other peoples taxes/pockets.
At least the Unconditional Basic Income is completely fair, and leads to an equal playing field.
