The gov't costs of hiring make it difficult and expensive - so it doesn't happen.
The gov't costs of medicines and healthcare (insurance included), make it difficult and expensive - so it is avoided.
Gov't costs of earning a living penalize success, making it more difficult and expensive - so more 'profit' from welfare, which is cheap and easy.
Gov't costs included in foods and fuels make them more expensive - so we buy poor quality cheap foods - and less of it.
In many things today, our difficult and expensive items are usually the things we need and we then get less of what we need - usually because of the gov't-imposed costs hidden within. It may sound fine that 'gov't protects the consumer', but in reality, the costs are breaking us.
