Thankfully an article that doesn't lump the class of 2005 into "millennials."
I wish I knew what could be done. Off the top of my head, reforming healthcare, if done properly, would make it easier/cheaper to hire more people at each business, allowing everyone more flexibility of schedule due to the greater number of employees, resulting in a more solid business (always someone available to work), but it would also mean potentially fewer hours for each person. Still, a job is a job at some point.
Makes me wonder as well, if you don't worry about healthcare, how much does it cost per employee to "hire" someone?
