Everywhere I Go Now, I See Help Wanted Signs

Some make sense: restaurants advertising for cooks, presumably for to-go orders.  Many other signs make no sense.  Aren't they just going to rehire their previous employees?  Now I see why.  4/23/20 New York Times:
Before the coronavirus, people receiving unemployment benefits in most states got, on average, less than half their weekly salaries.

Now, as millions file claims, many are poised to receive more money than they would have typically earned in their jobs, thanks to the additional $600 a week set aside in the federal stimulus package for the unemployed.
So why go back to work?
