Unfortunately, that chart you’ve used as your example is nonsense, just like the UBI and the idea that “all the jobs are going to be automated”. Sure, maybe a lot of the current jobs are going to be automated, but none of us has the imagination to foresee all of the new jobs automation will create. And then there is the myth of stagnate wages… The entire UBI pipe dream is built on a political mythology used to buy votes and garner support for a world in which politicians control their people by using the welfare state as a weapon. Stop falling for it.
