Yes, people want to be employed. This would give more people that opportunity. Going from 0 hours to 35 hours will generally increase a person's well-being (as well as the government's balance sheet). But income is subject to diminishing returns...each subsequent increase in income provides less of a boost to well-being. Therefore it is much less beneficial to go from 35 to 40 hours than to go from 0 to 5 hours.
