You're kidding, right? Others already pointed out that the original text
talked about taking care of their living expenses, not contracting them.
The only way for you to argue that 880 EUR would be a fair amount of
money is if you consider that they are paid to do work that only these
two can do. Of course in a situation like this you can write your pay
check yourself, at least almost. Given a market situation with some
competition the number simply is ridiculous.
