thanks for your quick reply! Would you mind telling me what their average salary is? (THe Filipinas i mean).
May I post a thread saying that I'm moving to Cairo in June and if anyone is leaving the country and wants to recommend their maid I will be looking?
Filipinas are looking for about 600 US dollars a month.. that would be for a 6 day week or they will work by the hour. They do not expect anything else other than maybe a snack mid day and of course water.
I have a Filipina maid who lives in, I don't pay her 600 but I do provide everything for her and I mean everything.. food, medicine, flights, visa, haircuts, satelitte tv, internet.. 2 months holiday ever two years..
Egyptians are in my opinion very poorly paid.. I know people who only pay 30 le a day!!! Egyptian maids can also be men and they will expect and ask for extras and rightly so considering what they are working for but it does get tiring being constantly asked for money for various illnesses and deaths in the family.
Sorry you cant post a thread asking for maids.. but hey you already have
I can ask my maid if she knows anyone in that area who is looking for work and if so how much do they want.
