The Universal Basic Income scenario seems to be one where people are free to cultivate their passions. From what I could gather, the main argument for this to be the best case scenario goes something like, if people are free to choose what they would like to do they would choose something which they are passionate about, which in turn would mean that they will gladly work towards becoming better at it, and create a pleasure-productivity feedback loop.
This seems almost universally accepted, and intuitively right.
My question is, who would take care of the menial but necessary tasks? (Elders' carers, garbage man, plumbers, cleaners...)
Some answer that AI development, will give rise to "unconscious" slave robots who will be able to take care of it. How likely is this?
There seems to also be an idea of the possible emergence of "artisanal" markets, in the sense that even if, for instances, robots are able to function as carers for basic tasks, there would be a premium market for "flesh" carers. And people who would choose to fulfill these roles would be highly remunerated.
Are there any studies, papers or polls on this topic?
