Assuming the this wasnt the umpteenth time i literally or figuratively bailed them out, I'd pay.
BUT, there would be lots of strings attached.
Realizing the the job market is difficult, they'd be doing MOST of the household work as well as other projects as "room and board."
They would have to pay back any fees i generously paid.
