So why does it scale in a completely different way from 'Trading Points for Cash', which is also intended as a way for characters to buy money with points?
The question is a false dichotomy. Jobs are cash-for-work; Independent Income is cash-for-no-work. You have to have prerequisites and job rolls to have a job; you have to spend character points for Independent Income.
Note that those prerequisites might cost points, and the skills for the job roll definitely cost points.
