Part-time employment increases with UBI
Cash payments, UBI opponents say, discourage people from working; however, analyzes of the Alaska Permanent Fund’s income transfer program show that the payments had no detrimental effect on employment.
Part-time employment actually increased by 17 percent.
Concerns about whether individuals are “willing to work” are based on misconceptions about work, according to Drexel.edu.
Employers, on the other hand, are afraid that individuals may refuse to work for poor pay and harmful working conditions.
To recruit and retain employees, UBI will challenge low-paid businesses and persuade companies to pay a viable salary and provide health and family services.
