ONE OBVIOUS SOLUTION TO THE EMPLOYMENT QUESTION...:

Part-Time Work Becomes Full-Time Wait for Better Job (CATHERINE RAMPELL,  April 19, 2013, NY Times)

"There's nothing inherently wrong with people taking part-time jobs if they want them," said Diane Swonk, chief economist at Mesirow Financial in Chicago. "The problem is that people are accepting part-time pay because they have no other choice."

Even for those who have been able to take advantage of the better job market, the opportunities have not been good. Since the economy began to recover almost four years ago, hiring has been concentrated in relatively low-wage service sectors, like retailing, home health care, and food preparation, and in contingent jobs at temporary-hiring companies. For example, nearly one out of every 13 jobs is at a restaurant, bar or other food-service establishment, a record high.

...is to shift to a ten or twenty hour work week with work of any kind triggering government benefits.
