I will not comment on the fact you think the service is poor, but that you object in principle to changes in operations because they reduce the number of staff employed. This is something I find, while all too common an opinion, quite bizarre.
To maintain your principles you will of course always turn your car lights off and never sound your horn just to ensure that a man with a red flag can continue in his employment as he runs in front of you.
This is not to object to the idea that changes to the number or use of staff has worsened your experience, it's the idea that employing fewer people is in of itself undesirable regardless of the quality of the service provided.
