    Default Trabajadora Domestica Wages

    I know what I paid my Trabajadora Domestica before but that was 2 years ago and I somewhat overpaid because of my unique situation. I am trying to get an idea of what the going average wages are and then I can adjust it for my situation.

    How much do you pay your Trabajadora Domestica? Can you please include the following information

    1) Where are you living?
    2) Is she full-time or part-time?
    3) Is she live-in or daily?
    4) What are her responsibilities?
    5) How much do you pay?

    Mine is live-in, full-time ( every other weekend off). Santiago. Responsible for daily care of 3 children, cooking and cleaning (2nd Mom).
    Thanks, I'm sure the wages are different from a year ago, so I just want to know the average before I add my "premium" because of my traveling.

    1. puerto plata
    2. part time
    3. comes twice a week
    4. cleaning and ironing only
    5. 1.700 pesos bi-weekly plus generous breakfasts

    my friends in santiago have a full-time live-in maid; one day a week off, she cooks, cleans, washes, irons and takes care of two kids (3 and 1 year). she is some sort of a distant family of a wife so the end arrangement is a bit different than usually. she gets paid about 8.000 pesos a month. she also gets health insurance, money for transport and, of course, all the food and living expenses.

    I think the health insurance is a good idea.
    I just gave it to our full time people... not that costly.

    Don't ask, I can't remember the cost

    maybe it would be helpful to add the size of the household, a two person vs 10 person household is a big difference in work-load

    Our household is two adults and three children (1,3 and 6). This week my wife will start working again for half days and we will have to change the laundry lady for someone who stays the whole week and will reorganize the workload a bit to include taking care of the little one in the morning: total 2x 9500 for one lady sleep in Monday to Friday and the other one 7.30am - 5.30pm and Saturday's 8-12.
