(Some people don't care about the doing significantly better part and are quite happy to stay home and enjoy the leisure time even if they could make significantly more, for that matter; and that ignores that a lot of people can't do better than $50K at their best).
So of course unemployment suddenly shot into the stratosphere and stayed there. And then politicians cite high unemployment as a reason to continue the expanded benefits. That's just circular reasoning.
People won't go back to work unless you stop paying them to stay home.
