It's getting to the point where I cringe whenever I visit a YouTube-related forum. Would-be YouTube Partner Programme applicants are desperately casting about, looking for any source of monetizable content they don't have to create totally themselves. I'm sorry, but that just isn't going to work anymore. Learn to create content yourselves, or forget about YouTube as a major source of money. Most creators who are partners, don't make enormous amounts of cash from ad revenue in the first place; so those who come to YouTube thinking they will make their living from posting videos, are usually so far off the mark it's not funny. If you want a living wage, there is a better way. It's called a job.
