    That's what these people are paid for? - is that what they do? (I never knew)

    That's what these people are paid for! - they should do it, no me!

    That's what these people are paid for. - that's what they do (simple statement of fact)

    I'm sure there are many more ways you could say this. The point is that by changing the stress and intonation it can be a question, an exclamation or a statement.
