    This is a bad thing masquerading as a good thing. They will be cutting staff/hours to control labor costs. No company is going to increase labor costs by a third out of their profits, it just doesn't work that way. Full time will be cut to part time. Part time hours will be reduced. Number of positions will be reduced.
