Re: Going rate for daily maid in pesos

Responding off board certainly makes sense from a business position but
also creates what may be interpreted as a us against them scenario
and that is not the way it is.

I know this is about business, but in business its called price fixing
and that is illegal.

If this dialog is seen as a being gringo against Mexican it is called prejudice.

In light of there being more than one way to interpret this discussion
I would prefer to see all dialog in the open.

When it comes to paying those who work for me I pay them what I think they
are worth. If they give me great service without any grief then I pay
them according to my value system and financial ability.

Mary's original post brings up issues which must be taken into account. If I
Pay a worker $xx pesos per hour or day and it turns out that there are $xx more
in other charges then I have to add those together to see if it stays within the
realm of my value of worth and budget. That would mean I pay less to the
person doing the actual work because I have to pay other charges.
