Won't people stop working?

Evidence from pilot studies show that Basic Income only reduces hours in paid work for children and mothers, which suggests that Basic Income would be beneficial for child development and education. Other demographics are largely unaffected in terms of work hours. See this piece of research on a Canadian pilot: Forget, Evelyn L. "The Town with No Poverty: The Health Effects of a Canadian Guaranteed Annual Income Field Experiment." Canadian Public Publicy 37, no. 3 (2011): 283-305.
