Does anyone actually think it will improve flight safety by someone having 1500 hours in light aircraft, for arguments sake as a flight instructor?

Because mark my words... You will see every 2 bit flight school in the states start to offer 1,500 hour CFI internships. Basically forced labor where the flight school gets CFI's for free as all other routes to an airline cockpit have been effectively cut off.

This may even cause a further reduction in the quality of applicant.
