I pay for medical expenses, from doctor fees, to lab or whatever tests, to meds.
Before a maid gets into my house... I have her tested to be sure.. walang TB, walang hepa walang worms, walang ganito ganyan. Mahirap kasi at baka contagious; or while working for me na eh sabihin sa akin sya nang ka ganito ganyang diprensya.
But it cannot be helped, people do get sick. Colds, etc. etc. heaven forbid, dengue!
I pay for it all... even pregnancies.
(I also give cash for deliveries... but bye-bye na by the 3rd,4th or 5th month. Ang iba kasi magaling magtago... sa 5th month ko natutunugan na bilugin. hehe)
Well, suerte nila, malas ko -- something like that. Well, kasi as members of the household staff, they are under our protection... so I pay for medical requirements, beginning to end.
Now, kung katulad doon sa isang thread.. si helper nag DIY facial peel and nasunog her face, and there are derma expenses and meds... aba, gastos nya na yon.
Or, sa kaka-date eh nagka STD -- teka, I will show you the door. Feel ko madumi. Wala ka pang condom? At baka kung ano na yan.
PMS meds, gastos na ng helpers yan, kasi I give P500/helper/month grocery allowance.
