Sounds very expensive.. I would check around to care giver sites and ask what is considered normal pay in your area.
Everyone you hire should give you their SS #.. If they want to be cash paid, you will need their SS#, so you can 1099 them. That way they will be responsible for taxes etc...
My guess would be-They found another job they like better and they are rude, so they do not bother to even call and let you know they will not be showing up for the interview.
