Unhappy Work-life balance queries

In India’s private sector, the workload is high. I have heard it’s worse in countries like Japan and Korea.

Now consider a case (real or hypothetical). Suppose a person is assigned the work of four people and paid Rs 20,000/-. Let’s say that work is divided among four people and the pay is also divided by four. That would be a salary of Rs 5,000/-. Taking some other real or imaginary costs into account to reduce the amount further to Rs 4,500/-. That would be even less.

It sounds meagre but such jobs would theoretically address the issues of massive unemployment and poverty. It may help break the vicious circle of poverty leading to overpopulation (poor tend to have more children) which in turn leads to more poverty. It may also ease the pressure on workers.

But what’s the catch? What are the practical difficulties in implementing it due to which this policy is not applied? It must be too fabulous to be a solution to real world problems. Or else it might have been done long ago.

This way or that way (either way) employers give away SAME amount of money. Why then employers don’t give 4,500 or 5,000 to four different individuals instead of giving 20,000 to a single person? Just what is the reason which makes it unappealing?

Some employees may argue, “We are willing to work for longer time.” Due to what factor employers don’t reply, “Other people too need employment.”?
