My cleaning woman asked for a raise last week. I know that I already pay her generously, so I was shocked when she told me that her other lady is giving her more. Dear ladies, when you are desperate for help at this time of year and offer “a bit more,” know that you are doing a great disservice to other women like you.
Perhaps, as a community, we can put a cap on the amount we are going to pay for services like these (I believe this was done in London some time ago) so that we won’t be upping the rates year after year.
