You want to know why people aren't interested in rejoining the workforce? Complicated paperwork. I just spent the afternoon filling out a 15 page employment application. Yeah 15 pages. Half way thru the PDF won't allow me to sign anymore, so now I have to print out the pages, manually sign them, scan them back into my computer and send them. Why would anyone do this when they're receiving generous unemployment benefits and quite possibly be making more than when they were working? I would have much rather spent this time with my dog at the park, but I wasn't raised that way so I fought my way thru the 15 pages.
