Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I never saw a union here suggesting: "OK, if we cannot get more salary mass, then cut individual salaries, but employ the unemployed".

The unemployment persists under leftist governments because they accept a neolibierlad dogma about the necessity of unemployment. For a state, there is no lack of fiat money, nor can there be a lack fiat money other then by political rules. So there is no need to either lower salaries in order to be able to employ.

If the recently hired does not delivered goods and services in proportion to what they are awarded by their new salary you get some inflation. But compared to the resource scarcity inflation it should be small change.
