You need to check the  content quality,  written by these content writers. You should not put the verdict on the content by just measuring its quantity. One of the major problem one faces with content is the lack of originality or uniqueness.

Most of the average content writers does not spend too much time on content research and instead they search for some content and copies the same content without making any alteration. This results in content duplication which is not considered good by major search engines, and would also ruin your SEO efforts resulting in your site going down in the traffic growth. Hence content duplication is not a healthy practice and you may not see enough output in your SEO activities.

There should not be any copy of your content  on the internet and it is your responsibility to make sure that the content is unique and original. There are generally two ways to check the originality of your content and these ways make sure that you do not end up putting duplicate content on your website.
