What is the going rate these days - I am paying S$800 a month but the amounts seem to vary a lot. My helper has said that her friend is being paid over $1000 a month?
Hmmm...Do you have small children? If none then $800 is a good rate.
Maids nowadays are so spoilt.
Perhaps you can have a look at the local business listings at Domestic Help & Singapore Maid Agencies and ask the business owners the current baseline of maid's salaries.
I think somewhere between 650 and 800 is about right, but depends on the extras. Our helper gets 13 months salary and we give her a tcicket home every year, plus we pay additional health insurance
Honestly I dont think they get paid enough - they also pay a government levy which they dont get back unlike in Hong Kong
Are they? Do you provide health insurance to your maids?
