"Never mind those ungrateful employees who are giving up half their waking lives for an employer who may think so little of them as to cut their hours short so as to minimize money "wasted" on the welfare of their workforce.

People do not go into business to employ people for the good of society, they go into business to make money, as much money as possible. The benefit of this behavior is it requires labor to achieve it, thus people benefit in the form of jobs. A job is a priviledge, not a right, if you don't want your job, someone else will gladly take it. Money generated by the business is the businesses money, its what it exists to do, its not there to make money just to provide for their employees wefare. That's why the market approach is so good, other businesses can lure employees with better pay/benefits, etc.
