Our helpers may choose not to press us on the bill provisions (off days lang issue, IMO) -- but for sure, a new breed of syndicate people will be hovering to shake down amos. Petty blackmail, but still, blackmail/shakedown.
I have started to address the day-off issue. Sabi ko sa house staff meeting ko yesterday --- I will get this girl (na hot na hot to join my household) to work for us for 6 days, so everyone has a specific day of the week off. Basta Sunday -- everybody is on board, except that girl. Sunday is the day we are all at home kasi. Wala nang 12th month off (they work for me for 11 months, on the 12th month -- off with pay & pamasahe & bonus). 5 days na lang after 12months with pay.
Reaction: Inis. Walang natuwa. Ok na daw yung 2 days off per month & the entire 12th month off with pay & pamasahe & bonus (iba pa 13th mo & Xmas bonus ha).
3 said: 5 days eh panona parang 4 days lang to get there & back here. Pano na fiesta, school opening ng mga anak, etc etc
Yung based in MMla - said: Naku eh di her family will wait for her to clean the house, do laundry, do errands, make repairs -- etc etc and expect from her money weekly too. Ka pagod daw weekly off, magastos.
1said, she goes to her cousin, wala sya house dito -- so more of her pay will go for food contribution & pautang.
Matigas my oldest staff: my cleaner-majordoma. She said: Ma'am, ayoko. Basta ok ako kahit ano gusto mo. Basta tulad ng dati. Basta.
I am in the process of scheduling too. As in, not all my house staff will be on board by 6am. Para may mag hugas after 6pm lols
Ayaw din nila. Sabi: ok lang kasi sanay kami magising maaga.
What was left unsaid is important: kasi by 11AM - tapos na, kumpulan for lunch & DVD/tv collective watch.
Takot sila with the new accounting, take home pay will be less -- wala nang windfall on the 12th month.
But as per hubby -- do not risk it. uso hudasan! uso ingrato.
I will never vote, in addition to any Lina: any Macapagal, Arroyo, Pimentel & Angara...ever.
