This could be hugely positive. The money wasted on welfare systems currently is extreme, from calculating to dealing with claimants and processing payments, not to mention the support required to investigate when things are disputed. In addition getting some work, but not full time is incompatible with welfare, leaving claimants with a choice, do some work and risk losing welfare or just wait for that full time job to land in their laps. A flat rate could even save money on larger families that claim vastly disproportionate amounts for their big houses and ten kids, if that's how they choose to go.
