… the number of Santas available and a parent’s desire to have their children see St. Nick in a timely manner, loosely determines the potential sketchiness of Santas in your area. As demand (D) increases, you can expect a corresponding increase in quantity (Q) or available Santas and the sketchiness (S) of any given Santa. (via)

To the contrary, a rise in demand for Santas with stable supply brings more potential shoppers to the mall, increasing Santa’s labor productivity. In equilibrium, Santa’s wage would increase as his labor productivity rises. A higher average wage for Santas would attract less sketchy applicants, decreasing overall sketchiness.
