The only reason it would lower unemployment is because the population would be culled pretty significantly. It would also have the effect of making bosses treat their employees better out of fear. Of course, this would probably have the effect of management making completely stupid decisions based on fear and cause the collapse of many corporations, making unemployment higher and thus creating a cyclical problem.

Really I just took particular issue with the figure of 1% being used. There is a simple concept of the natural rate of unemployment. Look into the concept and also how the statistics of unemployment are calculated and think about how this quoted figure doesn't make sense. It might be nitpicking, but it bothers me. And this isn't even getting into the rest of the silly premise.
