I think it’ll come regardless. Corporations will be taxed to keep social services running. More people will end up needing social services because they’re not working. Shelters, food banks, unemployment etc. UBI as a social service is just the next step.

Some people will say it’s because ChatGPT. Some will say they over-hired in the pandemic. Could be both imo. Microsoft would have inside information on how they can use ChatGPT to automate work but I doubt they’d fire 5% percent of staff before testing it out.

Think they’re having layoffs to reduce staff count and then they’re going to see how they can automate work and then announce more layoffs.
