A job guarantee would undermine the free market and freedom in general, as it would make us work for no reason, just for the sake of work, a Universal Basic Income instead, would actually allow the free market to work, while creating jobs that add real value to the economy and society.

“Presidential candidate Andrew Yang on Tuesday fired back at Sen. Bernie Sanders‘s (I-Vt.) after the senator criticized him for his proposal to use a universal basic income to tackle automation.

“Bernie ignores the facts that money in our hands would 1) create hundreds of thousands of local jobs and 2) recognize and reward the nurturing work being done in our homes and communities every day,” the entrepreneur tweeted.

“He also assumes that everyone wants to work for the government which isn’t true.”
