Just because YOU'RE a particularly selfish jerk, doesn't mean everyone is. Most people want to contribute and feel useful. Alot of people wouldn't give two shits about flipping burgers if they had a reasonable work environment and could live reasonably from it.

Work is insufferable because most work environments are garbage worlds of drama and living under the guillotine of job cuts or under staffing paired with overwork. With UBI and/or better social benefits, people could breathe for two seconds and find something that fits them well or feel safe leaving a hostile workplace.

They'd still be working, but they could find the right job for them instead of being trapped - which would improve work quality for EVERYONE because a nightmare workplace would just be starved of labor instead of being able to jerk workers around cause the alternative is homelessness.
