• Hi,

      Siti started with $500 basic salary and $10 phone card allowance. We have recently raised her salary to $550. She is also paid $20 extra if she is required to do extra work (such as late night babysitting) or when we request for her to work on her off day.

    How refreshing it is to read this post! I agree with all 7 points. A helper is just that- helping you out and should be treated like any employee. Off days, fixed working hours, privelleges are all important. They are after all not slaves. It is ironic how many people don’t trust their helpers enough to give them Sundays off (lest they get into some mischief) and yet leave their kids with them the whole day!!!
