Why would anyone take a shitty job with **** wages if they could make almost as much just doing nothing?

People working for minimum wage do that now though...   Lots of people could do just as well on welfare but donít. They go to work for crappy wages....   gaining work experience to better themselves, making barely enough to eat and pay rent, and, if theyíre lucky, saving some coin.   

So I donít think the argument put forward by Wilber and Graham that if you give people enough money to barely stay alive that they will just not bother working holds any weight whatsoever.
