This Sky News report looks at the Universal Basic Income.  It provides data on the likely impact of automation on employment as well as some examples of the impact of robotics in the workplace.  Further, it looks at the pilot scheme for UBI in Finland and the proposed trial in Scotland.  Those who are currently benefitting from the UBI in Finland seem more positive about it than those interviewed in Scotland who are not yet in receipt of the payments.  It will be interesting to see whether attitudes and behaviours change when it is introduced in parts of Scotland.
