The whole taking a cut in hours to stay qualified for section 8 may be bad in a sense but if enough people do the same type of thing, even if just to work less hours because why the fuck not, then theoretically some of these bushiness may require more staff to offset the loss in labour which means less unemployment. Plus it could more easily guide society into the mass loss of labour required as tech gets better and algorithms and robotics TAKE OVER!

Exactly. More people working in at least reasonably paid jobs means a healthier economy. Short term more people are paying taxes, long term less people require 'state aid' or however its funded in the states.

Also ageing populations are a bitch. Its becoming a large problem here in the uk, Scotland specifically.
