@VelshiMSNBC: Raise wages and then you no longer HAVE a labor shortage. “Republicans are trying to starve people back to work” by ending emergency unemployment benefits in at least 16 states, says @SenSanders. “I say pay people a living wage, and they WILL work.” #velshi

@scottsantens: The power to refuse to work until your conditions are met is called bargaining power. The unemployment insurance boost is providing that power temporarily. Unconditional basic income would provide that power permanently, and unlike UI, would be kept in addition to wages vs. lost.

@scottsantens: Looks like Glenn Beck is starting to see #UBI as the only option, although I don’t think he understands that UBI is a floor, or that people can make their own jobs with UBI, or that when people spend UBI, it creates more jobs, or that employers can raise wages to attract workers.
