That is not a very rational argument, we're talking about people who
see corporations as intrinsically evil, thus they are not to be
allowed to make money. (On other sides, there is not really a
meaningful basic-nonbasic ratio. The two add up, so you can accept
those underpaid jobs only because basic income is meeting your needs,
thus becoming a gift to evil corporation.)
