18. "Ostensible" job seeker?

What is that supposed to mean?

What about an "ostensible" highest earner?

I admit, I don't know what ostensible means... particularly in this context.

"stated or appearing to be true, but not necessarily so"

40% unemployment payment to someone that "appears to be seeking a job but isn't necessarily doing so"? Yeah, that sounds like a waste to me. Get up off your lazy butt and find a job. At least TRY.
