If one considers the purpose in the mind of a leftard....

there is X amount of work to do. I have Y people to do that work in 40 hours.

To your average leftard then they think that if you cut their hours by 25% then they will hire 25% more workers to do the same X amount of work.

When the reality is that their hours get cut 25%, the work X remains the same and the staff level remains the same. So the employer demands higher productivity.

Leftards never follow things through to their logical conclusion.

this is similar to the problem with congress raising the minimum wage by fiat.

if a burger king requires 8 persons for the work load of a 8am-5pm shift & can only afford that many. then raising minimum wage forces management to fire enough employees or raise prices to maintain or cover labor costs. if prices are raised, the budget of the entire customer base is affected. either fewer workers to bear the same work load, or decrease in customers who can’t or won’t pay higher prices.

redistributing wealth results in higher worker stress, customer cost & reduced productivity & quality. these faults are inherent in socialized medicine / socialist government.

^ truth. Wisdom and common sense are not their strengths.

Or service drops. Or more work is pushed to consumers as “self-help” and cost saving methods. Like Aldi’s promoting bagging your own as a cost saving method, or other grocers expanding self-scan as a time saver, because they cut clerks.
