Higher Income, Lower Costs & Guaranteed Safety Net

  1. If you earn less than 25% of the median income, say $300/wk, you keep all your income, on top of the UBI.
  2. Above $300 earned income, you keep the whole UBI, but your earnings would be reduced by 40 cents in every dollar earned above $300 up to $1,576 (which is about 125% of the median wage)
  3. Above $1576, your earnings would be reduced by the full amount of the UBI. At this level, there would be little incentive to give up your earned income to live on the UBI… though you would have that choice!
