“Unexpected things come up, and they require you, not somebody you hire,” he said. Anyone with a family knows what that is like, and nearly any job could accommodate it, but relatively few do.

does first underlined 'you' refer to 'they'?

    Unexpected things come up (in your family life), and those things require your presence, not the presence of a person you hire to help with your kids.

    (Your second question should probably have its own thread.)

    The underlined you means YOU the reader are required by someone (they). I presume THEY here refers to some other famly member.
