Instead, they believe a guaranteed basic income will motivate residents more than the current welfare program that is conditional on them seeking a job. While that may seem strange, proponents believe that when people do not have to worry about paying for basic needs they are motivated to seek out other opportunities. This could range from going back to school, to achieving a better work-life balance with flexible hours or even, giving back to society by volunteering.
