One of the main conservative points in favour of a basic income is to avoid the "welfare trap" in which people are disincentivized from finding work when any earned income is clawed back from their welfare payment.

This is neither here nor there wrt BI: in Ontario, earned income is clawed back at 50% (after the first $200/mo) for those on OW.
