Won’t this just encourage people to not work and go surfing?
Maybe. There will likely be some people for whom this is an attractive idea. However, people who are able and willing are more likely to pick up seasonal, or short term work in the absence of the incumbent stand down periods and reductions in eligibility of the current transfer / benefit system. In other words, it is designed to incentivise more work, not less.
