Government help?

I had an interesting conversation with a friend this last week. He lives in Panama in the country. He used to employee a housekeeper and a gardener. He paid them competitive wages and helped them with family crises. The government passed laws about mandatory health care, vacation time, and severance pay even if they were fired for cause. Now they do most of the work themselves because it is too expensive to hire people. Who is the loser here?
