  1. It could also have another consequence that you have not discussed – the behaviour of employers. If an employer treats its employees badly (and far too many do) the employees can do very little about it. They can’t leave the job and go on benefits, if they complain they risk being fired, if they take another job (assuming they can find one) they take the risk of ending up with another employer who is even worse.

    If employees have a guaranteed income to fall back on they can take the risk of asserting their rights in the workplace or, if the employer is particularly bad, just leave. Instead of taking part in the race to the bottom in terms of wages and employment conditions, employers may find that they have to treat their employees with more dignity and respect or risk having such a bad reputation that they can’t get a workforce.
