This isn't about finding the best pilots.

It's about finding the cheapest pilots. (for the company!)
How is this true? There are so many already-qualified people looking for jobs that EZY could offer them a relatively poorly paid position as an FO and the vast majority of them would take it. Little training costs; little recruitment/selection costs; low salaries. This would be my definition of "cheapest" pilots, but it's not what EZY are doing. So I disagree that it's entirely about finding the cheapest pilots. If you look at it purely objectively and try to work out the strategy behind the current recruitment situation at EZY then you'll quickly see that cost is only one aspect of it.
