Why do they just stand around in one spot day after day after day inside of a gym? Don't they have families? What business could they possibly have inside a gym doing anything other than challenging the gym leader? I know this is a video game, but it's still interesting to talk about these things.

The phenomenon is hardly exclusive to gym trainers. 90% of NPCs don't stand anywhere near their homes.

I know that but at least maybe they're bird-watching outside. What could you possibly be doing inside a gym.

Indentured servants. They get help from the Gym Leader in exchange for their servitude.

Of course not! Trainers, regardless of status, can't legally enslave other people, only pokemon...

What about Elesa and Smogoon then?

They are probably employees or students of the gym trainer.

I don't think Elesa has enslaved Smogoon. Their love is mutual as far as I understand.
