In this paper I start from the biblical justification of the value and dignity of work (I), which is unique in the entire ancient world. At the same time, it leads to an overall biblical clarification of the image of man, so that man, who was expelled from paradise, is at the same time appreciated in his participation in the cultivation of the earth (I.1). The consequences for a Christian work ethic up to the Catholic Social Teaching (I.5) are explained, as is the decline of this understanding of work in the course of industrialisation and unleashed capitalism (I.4.). In the second part, the Unconditional Basic Income (II) is explicated in its multifactorial affinities, economically, legal-theoretically, socio-philosophically and in view of the global world situation. Finally (III), a summary is drawn that outlines alternative forms of the UBI in the world of work.
