A Universal Basic Income program is social security program where all citizens of a country receive a regular, unconditional sum of money from the government. The funding for Universal Basic Income comes from taxation and government owned entities including income from endowments, real estate and natural resources. Several countries, including Finland, India and Brazil, have experimented with a UBI system but have not implemented a permanent program. The longest running UBI system in the world is the Alaska Permanent Fund in the U.S. state of Alaska. In the Alaska Permanent Fund each individual and family receives a monthly sum that is funded by dividends from the state’s oil revenues. Proponents of UBI argue that it will reduce or eliminate poverty by providing everyone with a basic income to cover housing and food. Opponents argue that a UBI would be detrimental to economies by encouraging people to either work less or drop out of the workforce entirely.

No, we need to encourage and enforce more people to work for their money instead of getting hard earned tax payer money handouts from the government when a lot of the time, the people who do get handouts waste it on gambling, drugs and alcohol. Emphasis needs to be on improving infrastructure and facilities and services, reduce or slow down the cost of living to earnings so people can actually afford to pay for basic necessities themselves. And make healthcare and dental services free (included in the taxes) and reduce prices on environmentally friendly products and services to reduce carbon footprint and entice people to make more environmentally conscious decisions with their purchases.
This is based on individual cases. A person or family should not suffer and require to have the essentials. This should not be equated as a handout. The individual should be encouraged to acquire skill sets which can get them employed.
