I think this is a misinterpretation.

I have not heard a single voice opposing people getting paid for doing
KDE hacking.

I have heard some people arguing that KDE eV shouldn't pay people to
hack on KDE software.

I have still to be convinced that it is a good idea that KDE eV decides
whose work is good enough to qualify for KDE money.
