UBI Day, or Universal Basic Income Day, is set to occur every year in the future on January 13th. The holiday comes as a part of a series of “holidays of the future” that will highlight the immense changes that are taking place due to technology.
UBI Day celebrates the unconditional provision of periodic payments to people. It is needed because of the vast transformation of the meaning of work due to Artificial Intelligence and automation that will eliminate many jobs. UBI will also enable immense creativity as people will be able to pursue their passions unfettered by crushing material concerns.
Imagine being able to travel into the Metaverse while being liberated from worry about basic needs. The Metaverse, automation, and UBI are recurring themes in the upcoming Zombies of Things book series.
