How would you know that they're underpaid? Do you mean that the animation budget is too small?

And sure, for this series it may as well be enough, but it's still a fairly lazy and very unambitious product when it comes to its animation aspect.
The "in the last few years" is the key sentence here. I've been recently re-watching episodes from the late 90's and it was very smooth back then. Nowadays many scenes feel like slideshows, rather than proper animation. I think that around episode 500 was the time the animation has gotten worse. Nowadays, it's even worse than that. The mystery train case and the recent Akai family case are the perfect examples of horrendous animation.
