    There doesn't

    unless you believe that all people actually like to sit at home for months, or that poverty is necessary to "cure laziness".

    All experiments with the Unconditional Basic Income have shown that people want to work, and sometimes will even prefer work they don't get paid for over pointless work they do get paid for
