Wow. I didn't think they made that much on unemployment, I thought it was like $200-300. If they are making that much that would explain it.
I had another job opening that took over 6 months to hire and had probably 10-15 applicants.
It just doesn't make sense to me unless as you pointed out they are making decent money to sit on their ass.
