I just hired a cleaning lady a few weeks ago after having a baby. I am paying $15 an hour for 5 hours on Fridays. I also pay the bus fare.

I'm not sure if this is the typical rate though because I didn't ask around. I was just happy to find someone willing to come on Fridays.

Mine just raised it from 13 to 15 (plus transportation). She's been with me for 11 years, about 10 hours a week, and started at 10 an hour. She tells me other people are already paying her $18-20 plus transportation.

So do your cleaning ladies not speak to ours?

Minimum wage in NYC is only $15 an hour and we dont even get transportation. And we have to pay taxes for it. Its good to be an illegal cleaning lady being spoiled by the Jewish women of NY. At this rate, why not pay for legal citizens who actually pay taxes since it comes out more or less the same?

I mean...I get your point in the long run but if you want an actual answer...because someone who's paying taxes wants significantly more. I pay my babysitter on the books. I'm the only parent who sends to her who isn't giving her cash. I'm paying $23 per hour when the cash parents are paying $16. Plus the "legal citizens" (I don't know why you're assuming they're all illegals, mine isn't) won't want to work all kinds of hours, cheerfully doing all kinds of stuff. They'll start talking about paid vacation and paid sick leave and so on. And before you know it, the price will have quadrupled.

You should definitely find someone DOCUMENTED and pay them on the books.

If you make $15 an hour the only income taxes you would be paying would be FICA and for that you will be getting Medicare and Social Security.

You are also able to get unemployment.

You also have the benefit of your employer paying half the cost of FICA which is a significant benefit. There is also often some form of PTO.

Everyone pays taxes in the form of sales taxes which is disproportionately hard on lower paid workers since a disproportionate percentage of their income is spent on taxable items. In NYC only food doesn't have sales tax.

And not all cleaning ladies are undocumented. At any rate, I don't begrudge hard working people who are working at jobs that most Americans won't take.

I think many things are more expensive there. Isn't childcare prices higher there than the Midwood area also?
