Well, that's mincome, not a UBI. I personally prefer a UBI, but like mincome fairly well. The other major point is that from the perspective of those who object to UBI, the problems they discuss are all theoretical problems with mincome as well, and since they didn't happen they are unlikely to happen with a UBI.

Well, you gotta aim high but you're not gonna hit the moon. I'd settle for a mincome. It may not be what we're asking for or really need. But, it would go a long way to help a LOT of people. Something is better than nothing.

I'd actually say the disincentive to work is greater on mincome than UBI as with the latter you don't lose any of your benefit by working. The fact that the decrease in workers was negligible with mincome, means the UBI may have essentially no negative impact at all.

That's kind of where I was with it...
