Title: Salary for househelp?
Post by: bluegintonic on April 18, 2014, 08:14:50 pm
Hi sisses and bros,

Recently relocated back to the Philippines after being out of the country for 10 years.As of now I don't have any househelp yet but will need one by next month and I was wondering how much is the starting pay of an all around maid (help watch over my toddler,clean,tidy up,errands and at least basic knowledge how to fry/cook rice) and a family driver? I will be based in Santa Rosa in Laguna and I've heard iba daw pag provincial rate? I don't know of any maid agencies there and I would prefer the driver local lang sana coz I prefer a live out driver.I'm not really used to having other people live with me and even the maid can also be live out  sana. If anybody knows a maid agency locally (south luzon)? that would be of great help.Thanks!

Sis, it's really difficult to get house help now a days especially if you require the maid to care for your toddler and do house hold chores.  Saamin nga, we only require the maid to clean, and do basic cooking and so far we have not had any luck with 3 of the agencies we have tried.  Starting is 3,500, then after a month, the maid expects an increase plus the benefits.

For a newborn yaya, the starting is between 6k to 7k  ;)

i start my yaya at 4K and give her an increase after 3 months. she lives with us, goes to school with my daughter and basically watches over her while we are at work. we also have an all-around maid. she has the same salary but she only stays with us for 3 days every week. she does laundry, plancha, basic cooking, cleaning. the rest of the week, we pick up after ourselves. the system works for us this way.

as far as drivers are concerned, you can get a stay out driver naman. starting is usually 10K afaik. but you can also check what their asking is. yun lang kasi yung alam ko based on what my friends pay their driver.

I'm from Bulacan sis, yung househelper namin started at 3k, pero she doesn't need to take care of my kids. Minsan lang she needs to help by mom na tingnan yung isang bata pag busy sya sa alaga dun sa isa. I think if all around, at least 4k starting nya. Sa driver naman, nasa 3-4k din ang starting. I don't know if it is because of the provincial rate kaya medyo mababa pero ganun ang normal na rate ng househelpers dito sa amin. Yung mga all around helpers ng mga in-laws ko who lives in Pasig and Manila, nasa 4k-5k ang starting nila. :)

Ours is 3k plus 500 from my lola kasi minsan sinasamahan niya sa hospital lola ko. All around, lahat kaming mgkakapatid is old enough but we have 4 dogs.

How much ang iniincrease ninyo mga sis pag nagtagal na sila?

I used to have a yaya/hh - alaga sa daughter ko, hatid sundo sa school (walking distance), linis sa bahay, laundry. Every week ang off. I paid her P3000 plus SSS and Philhealth, free toiletries. Ako na yung nagluluto ng food namin before.

Yung sa driver, my former boss pays her driver P8K pero since resto owner yung boss ko nabibigyan yung driver ng service charge and tip (half share) kasi he helps out naman.

Yung yaya ng baby ko dinaig pa akong mag r&r. Nakakaloka humanap ng yaya ngayon. bata pa kase, 21 yrs old pa lang. Grabe mag cellphone, tapos lahat na lang (driver, guards sa school) nakikipag harutan. partida, may asawa na siya at five years na sila mag asawa. 4K ang pasweldo ko sakanya. Tapos after 3months 4.5 na. sagot ko toiletries, 250 na load per month at bukod pa ang mga hingi hingi ng damit at nag request ng celplhone this Christmas. Wala naman akong choice kase wala ako sa pinas at siya lang, driver at si mommy ko na may sariling yaya dahil hindi na makatayo ang magkakasama. :(

Post by: imeego on December 31, 2014, 05:26:58 pm
We are based in cebu.
Yaya- 4k/month. She goes with my son to school. 4 yrs old na son ko so di na alagain, everything else ako na gumagawa like washing, sterilizing the bottles, feeding, bathing, etc. she has to watch over my son lang when i need to do something. I have a 1 yr old baby din pero im the only one who takes care of her.

Helper A gets 3k per month, while helper B & C get 2.5k/month coz they just started a month ago, both 18 yrs old at wala pang experience so needs training pa. Planning to increase their salary once dumating yung replacement who's starting salary is 3k para walang inggitan.

We provide their toiletries and snacks (twice a day). They eat the same food as ours. Plus sss, philhealth, 13th month etc

It's just me, hubby and the 2 kids in the house. Im a full time mom pa so ako talaga taga-alaga sa kids. But i feel na mas pagod pa ako kesa sa kanila na andaming rest time, daig pa ako sa tagal ng pahinga at bakasyon nila

@Sis Ikaela, ano yung rates na sinabi? 3K din kapag provinces then 5K and up sa Manila?

Yes I think that's what they are saying.  For all around help yan kasi starting for yaya in manila is 6k.  The maids in our place are makwenta, they compare jobs, duties and salaries kaya nga paaalisin ko na ngayon maid namin.  4,5k siya and parang gusto pa yata ng increase dahil a little over 6 months na siya.  She doesn't cook food all the time by the way, walang kusa.
Title: Re: Salary for househelp?
Post by: imeego on April 04, 2015, 01:38:43 pm
I have 1 yaya and 2 helpers now, puro bago pa.. One helper started around nov last year, starting salary was 2500 lang coz no experience at all, andami pang nabasag/nasira na gamit at mahilig magbakasyon.  She's on her 6th month now so gagawin ko ng 3k..the other one naman has been with us since january, starting salary is 3k, masipag at satisfied ako sa trabaho nya so im planning to increase her salary to 3500 on june, while the 3rd helper naman started this month lang, deaf and mute but we decided to hire her pa din, at pantay na lang din sweldo nya coz nakakaawa din.

My son's yaya started 3500 last December now 4 months na sya we increased her salary to 4500 kasi shes masipag. Plus SSS PHilhealth and Pagibig.

Yung 2nd yaya we'll
Give her 4k plus benefits. Ganyan kasi ang gustong starting ng iba. Yung iba pa nga gusto yaya lang hindi maglilinis laba luto ang bayad 4k. Yung all around naman namin dati ayaw mag alaga ng bata 3500. Mapili na sila sa work and sweldo now.
Title: Re: Salary for househelp?
Post by: Beng01 on April 27, 2015, 05:30:09 pm
The yaya of my baby is 4k/monthly plus SSS benefits, pero half langsa SSS. Kasi Malaki ang gusto nyang contribution monthly which is 420/monthly.

Sinasama din namin siya sa expenses sa groceries (toiletries, etc.) and vaccines

Aside from being a yaya to my baby, she also :
Cooks for us
Laba baby's clothes and sometimes my hubby and I, sometimes my sister's
Wash dishes
Magwalis, magligpit ng mga gamit.

This yaya is a 55 years old. She is our yaya since we are small until she left our home when I was 12 years old. We like her kasi she is very trusted at may malasakit, minsan nga lang nakakainis like mahilig magpaalam as in every 2 weeks uuwi sa kanila, sabado alis then linggo ng hapon balik, minsan nauuna pa samin kumain, mahilig gumala (magtatanong: 'saan ang gala natin sa sabado beng?'- na nagtitipid kami mag asawa kasi ang mahal ng gatas ng anak ko, magsa suggest ng ulam kasi daw sawa na siya sa isda, which to us is ok pero minsan parang sobra na, malakas sa sabon, diswashing soap, Zonrox...haaysss pero napapalagpas namin kasi nga trusted naman namin. Hahahah

Pero going back sa salary ~Do you think she is underpaid dahil sa job responsibilities nya? Sorry napahaba...

Post by: teal_rayy on June 11, 2015, 05:25:30 pm
@Beng01 how is your yaya able to do all those things for your house hold?  I have a yaya and another maid for the things around the house.  We often eat outside din so they can sleep early, para din to lessen their workload.  Starting ng maid ko is 4k and the yaya is 6k, which we plan to increase.

Cebu:
P4300 monthly plus sss(ako nagbayad). Wala na philhealth kasi under naman siya sa indigents sa lugar nila at wala naring pag-ibig.

Trabaho: Sundo sa paaralan ng 4yo ko, samahan sa dance school pag nasa work ako, magluto, laba, linis ng apartment.

Day-off: Every week, 1.5days

1 year and 3 months na. Sana magtagal pa.

Post by: kikai on June 26, 2015, 01:06:31 pm
ours is 3500 laundry via washing machine 2x a week..walis sa paligid pag umaga, tapos linis ng house- room ng sr citizen at small sala at kitchen.. except our room kasi ako naglilinis nun..at 2x a week bath room.. ako namamalengke..minsan ko sinama sa palengke isda na worth 120 half kilo ang pnili...sa grocery choosy din sa mga binibili ko.. walang ironing kasi sumasakit daw tyan nya kapag mainit...

umaga lang sya busy after lunch wala na siesta time na, watch tv o nap time.. then meryenda na with sr citizen. tapos luto ng dinner.  pag weekend pag sat mga 5pm aalis sya para meet asawa nag start na kukuha lang sweldo ng asawa, then naging overnight na.. til nag decide kami payagan na sa bahay na lang sila magkita.. kaso pag sunday sya pa nagsasabi wag daw ako aalis kasi me lakad sila!!!

kaya yung kasama nya si maid number 2 nag resign kasi nainggit eh wala naman sya pupuntahan sa manila kamag anak kasi hindi sya marunong.. naging demanding.. di pa ko nahanap ng kapalit..

started feb kaso umuwi ng province ng summer for 6 days.. at PAID vacation kasi daw me old sya na mga naging boss kahit daw 3 weeks paid sya.. muntik na ako malaglag sa silya ko.. kasi talo pa ako nag oopisina you earn leave credits after 6 months..

kaso no choice tyaga dahil sa sr citizen para me kasama.. the bad part- nagbibilang ng ginagawa at nagrereklamo pa kulang pa daw sweldo nya sa dami ng ginagawa nya pag gusto mangatwiran..

bonus pa na kasama na nya anak nya sa bahay at dun na nag aaral kaya araw araw hatid sundo nya..

Sakin 3,500 sa morning gising siya to prepare breakfast, wakeup my son which is 11 na malaki nanaman kaya na mag ayus ready lang baon sandwich and rice waterjug, then pwede pa magtulog kasi 8am pa gising naminmag asawa. Breakfast kami, ligpit siya tapos labawhich is 2x or thrice a week.

Lunch kadalasan nasa labas ako. So siya lang mag isa. Dinner ako nagluluto hiwa lang at ligpit siya.

Linis sala, room banyo 1bedroom apartment lang kami.

Mahirap din ang work nila though may siesta sa hapon kasi naranasan ko magisa asikaso house for like 8 months kaloka. Wala pa siya sss at phil health pero free use of my rarely use ipad mini para mag fb siya. Hindi narin masama. :)

Pag stay-out magkano pwede kong ibayad? Ito kasing nakuha ko, Okay naman siya. Weekend ang sched kaso gusto na niya 4-5 Days na ang pasok as stay-out hh since masikip sa condo at malapit lang din siya samin.

Sa ngayon P500 bayad ko weekends, 1:30 hanggang 6:00PM pinakalate na uwi. Sagot ko na din pamasahe so parang abot na din 600 bayad.

Ito lang ang ginagawa niya pag weekends ngayon
- linis banyo weekly
-mop ng sahig weekly din
-plantsa ng uniform ng kinder at ni hubby
-walis sa sala at kitchen,sa kwarto ako na naglilinis maliit lang namn.
-hugas plato minsan at konting utos

Kung magiging 4-5 days na siya: 2:00-5:30 or hanggang 6PM

-walis ng sala at kitchen
-hugas plato,linis balcony na maliit
-mamalengke once a week,kung grocery naman nasa tapat lang ang robinson
-konting utos mga magagaan na utos lang naman since may alam din ako sa gawain..

ayoko lang kasi siya mawala kaya kahit mas mahabang araw gusto niya hinayaan ko na din,mahirap makakuha ng matinong helper ngayon,at sa case namin tatlo lang kami,ang hirap lalo na pag may isang nagkakasakit,lagi tatlo kami sa ospital kasama pa anak namin na maliit dahil wala maiwan. Magkano kaya pwede bayad 4 days siya dito uwian din? Thanks!!

Buti pa kayo payag sa 3500 na salary mga helpers niyo.  Sa subdivision namin starting is 4000 and you have to increase to 4500 right away kasi yan ang average salary ng all around.
Title: Re: Salary for househelp?
Post by: mama7 on September 16, 2015, 10:54:14 pm
Grabe naman sis nicoletta ang arte naman sa subdivision niyo. Baka naman 4k tapos palpak. Dapat nga simula sa 3k yung 1st month kasi kelangan mo pa turuan yun sa paggawa sa paraan na gusto mo. Saka kahit marunong paano kung di ayos ugali? Sayang sweldo. Demanding na mga katulong ngayon eh halos mga wala naman alam pag nagsi pasok. Meron nga group sa.fb ng ganyan about helpers,nakakainis kasi sinasabi nila 4k starting tapos raise ng 300pesos every 3 months. Parang ang gastos masyado,dami tuloy nag emand ng mataas na sweldo tapos kundi palpak magnanakaw naman.

Kaya ako ok na sa stay out 2 days. Ayoko aaligid sila sa tabi ako at baka magdilim paningin ko hahah! Sa dami ng pangit na experience ko sa ganyan eh kung kaya kong gawin yung iba sige ako na gagawa kesa iuutos ko sa katulong,pakain mo,pasweldo mo may sasabhin at sasabhin pa sayo.

Yung dalawang househelp na nakuha namin from agency 4k talaga ang starting nila plus we pay their govt contributions and i pay them extra in the event they dont take their day off (twice a month ang day off). Minsan sagot ko pa ang pang load. Sobrang gaan ng trabaho kasi we don't have kids. Sadly, umabuso pa din sila in the end.

Pag agency kasi mahal talaga kaya di na kumukuha mommy ko sa ganyan,tiis din muna sila sa bahay. Magkaka sabwat din yan eh,kikita kasi sila pag kumuha ka bago,babayaran mo replacement fee.

Pag stay-out magkano pwede kong ibayad?

Sa ngayon P500 bayad ko weekends, 1:30 hanggang 6:00PM pinakalate na uwi.!


Sa akin, P200.00 per day/ 6 days a week (no work/ no pay).
all around na yun pero main trabaho nya alagaan ang bunso ko. tuwing sunday sya nagawa ng general cleaning sa bahay. Bayad ko rin yung Kasamabahay Law.
5:30am to 6:00pm dapat ang time nya pero dumadating sya sa bahay ng 6am at nakakauwi ako ng 7pm. kasama namin sya kapag nalabas kami, inaabot ng 9pm ang uwi namin. Sagot ko rin yung bf/lunch/snack/dinner at meron cp sa bahay na pwede nya gamitin within limit. 
3 houses away lang ang bahay nya sa amin.
Minsan may 3 day-off sya in a month.
Mag 4 years na sya sa akin this year.

In fairness to her, maayos naman work niya and she would relieve my yaya if maliligo or if day off.  So in that sense, hindi narin masama. She gets 4500 na wala pa siyang 6 months sakin kasi mahirap talaga sa area namin you have to compete salary wise or baka ma demoralise ang maid mo for getting less compared to others.
Title: Re: Salary for househelp?
Post by: ninsky01 on September 29, 2015, 04:16:49 pm
I give 3,500 sa all-around household helper namin. She stays with us and food included na.. Kasama din namin sya tuwing bakasyon.

First time to hire kasi we have a baby na. Sakto lang naman yung 3,500 diba? Do you give 13th month pay? Pro-rata from the number of months she got hired? :)
Title: Re: Salary for househelp?
Post by: elarose on September 30, 2015, 07:02:43 pm
3500 din pasahod ko sa yaya namin. We only have one child (9 mos old). Gumagawa din sya ng ibang gawain sa house gaya ng paglilinis at pagluluto. Maliit lang naman ang house namin so carry na nya. May taga laba plantsa din kami na every week pumupunta.

3K starting ko sa yaya. All-around pero mas madami pang siesta time kasi both of us are working, si daughter naman is hinahatid sa house ng mom ko ng service after school, sundo either ni husband or ako after office. Sa house, may kasama lang ng tsu na di pa maalagaan maayos. Hirap maghanap ng helper nowadays.

Tapos 5k na ang starting salaries, yun iba mas mataas pa. Sabi ko kahit 1st month 4k if ok, 2nd month bigyan ko 5k. Aba ayaw!

Sa akin, P200.00 per day/ 6 days a week (no work/ no pay).
all around na yun pero main trabaho nya alagaan ang bunso ko. tuwing sunday sya nagawa ng general cleaning sa bahay. Bayad ko rin yung Kasamabahay Law.
5:30am to 6:00pm dapat ang time nya pero dumadating sya sa bahay ng 6am at nakakauwi ako ng 7pm. kasama namin sya kapag nalabas kami, inaabot ng 9pm ang uwi namin. Sagot ko rin yung bf/lunch/snack/dinner at meron cp sa bahay na pwede nya gamitin within limit. 
3 houses away lang ang bahay nya sa amin.
Minsan may 3 day-off sya in a month.
Mag 4 years na sya sa akin this year.

FYI, and for everyone na rin sa thread, the Kasambahay Law does not apply to part-time househelp.

Starting salary of my 3-month old daughter's yaya: 4,500+toiletries+vitamins.

Duties:

-takes care of baby
-washes baby's things
-cooks for us at konting linis linis sa 1st floor ng house because baby stays downstairs when we are not around. (marami pa gamit sa supposed nursery kasi bagong lipat+mas malamig sa baba.)

-feeds my pet dog and bathes him 1-2x a week.

However, tuwing Thursday to Sunday, may dumadating kaming part-time na kasama niya, nagluluto, laba and plantsa for my mom, me and husband, linis rooms and 2 CR. My mom pays the part-time worker 700/week.


Yaya started last May 2016. I already informed her that I will give her a raise. Starting September, she will be receiving 5k per month. Then balak ko 1k increase per year na. So happy with her performance, alagang alaga ang anak ko. 59 years old na si yaya and marami siyang mga pamahiin about child care pero when i tell her i do not follow pamahiins, she does not impose naman. Like yung sa bigkis, gulat siya nung una kasi i forbid her to use bigkis. I told her the doctor advised against it. Di naman niya pinilit. Happy ako kay yaya kasi very professional naman siya.

Been through so many for the past 8 months na. It's so tiring to interview and retrain. This current one magaling but pricey with starting at 6000 then nag ask pa ng toiletries then asking about sss pa. Sabi ko pag above 5k inclusive na sss dun.
Then she goes may plans si duterte na hindi kasama yung SSS sa ganung rate. Not sure where she got it. 1 week palang siya ah demanding na. Have you heard of such plans?

Hi sis... According to KB law, if the salary is 5k above, they should shoulder the "employee share" of the sss, philhealth and pag-ibig. May corresponding hatian yung employee and employer (may table yun). If less than 5K ang salary, the employer should shoulder 100% of the contribution. Hindi ko rin alam yung sinabi niya bout "plans ni duterte etc..

^hi blushberry, hindi lang kasi basta househelp yung sa akin,  i leave my infant daughter with her everyday when I leave for work. bukod doon, may kusa siya, well trained at professional so i think she deserves the amount of salary that we pay her. in fact, kung makakaabot siya ng 1 year, i will propose na tumuloy pa siya with a 1k increase every June tuwing after ng birthday ng daughter ko. we treat our yaya very well because my daughter is in her hands. medyo matagal pa bago magretire ang mom ko, mga 6 years pa so sana magtagal pa siya kasi hindi basta basta makakahanap ng kagaya niya mag alaga at mapagkakatiwalaan.

actually 2 naman un helpers sa bahay. this househelp na aalis ay marunong mag prito prito hehe. water the plants.
we have a weekly labandera and plantsadora so, di mabigat ang work load nila. My sis cooks most of the time or dine out pag dinner. the helpers have their own shared room with TV (tinanggal na un cable nila) and own T&B. the other helper naman, feeds the 3 small dogs. shared naman sila sa paglinis ng bahay. monthly lang ako umuwi samin and wala akong inuutos sa kanila.. sayang lang i bought christmas gifts na.. still thinking if ibibigay ko pa ba haha. un 13th month pay nya ibibgay naman talaga na pro-rate kase last year naka pro-rate din un 13th month nya. hehe

hindi naman every year. naisip ko lang na mas tamang taasan ang sweldo nya dahil sa dami ng ginagawa nya sa bahay namin.

yung 4500 starting salary nya nung June 2016 siya dumating sa amin (2 weeks pa lang ang baby ko). usapan upon engagement, kapag naging satisfied kami sa performance nya, itataas din namin to 5k.  ginawa kong 5k nung september 2016. nung january 2017, tinaas namin to 6k, to reward good service. and the most important reason: para mag-isip isip muna, manghinayang kung aalis. kasi malaki na sweldo nya. lahat ng nagiging yaya sa kapitbahay namin, umaalis. ayoko umalis si yaya. so i give proper compensation. di naman yearly yun. i suppose, sa ngayon, tama na muna yun.

also, wala siya SSS, Pag-ibig and philhealth. di kasi namin siya makuhanan ng mga yun kasi wala siyang birth certificate. di na rin nya gusto pang kumuha ng SSS, because she is already turning 60 this year. but we are planning to process her late registration, para makakuha siya ng senior citizen's card at Philhealth...

Currently, 5.5k for the yaya who has been with us for more than 2 years na..my kids are 6 and 3 yrs old na and im a SAHM, so ang main role nya lang is sundo sa panganay ko sa school..the rest, ako na talaga nag-aasikaso sa kids ko..so sya, tumutulong na lang sya sa ibang chores kasi wala na syang ibang gagawin..we offered na pag-aralin sya ng college this school year, but i told her na she would only get half of her current salary na lang para lang may maipadala pa sya sa family nya,  but we will shoulder everything na from books, uniform, daily allowance and projects etc..the other helper naman receives 4k as starting salary, wala pang 1 mOnth but i think ok naman magtrabaho so i might give her an increase on her 6th month..our stay out driver naman gets 6k a month, bale school days lang pasok nya and hatid-sundo lang sa school..pag walang pasok ang kids, no need for him to report for work na..

Ang laki na pala talaga ng pasahod sa mga helpers, nakakaloka. We're planning to get an all around househelp -- laba, plantsa, linis, luto. I have a 9 month old but i'll be working from home so i'll be hands on pa rin kay baby, but I expect to hire someone who's willing to take care of baby too minsan when I have to run errands outside. Nagbudget kami ng 4k + toiletries, tapos optional philhealth and sss/pag ibig. Mukhang di pala uubra ang 4k lang. Iniisip ko kasi maliit lang naman apartment namin and 2 lang kami ni husband + baby sa house so di naman ganun kabigat ang work?

yan din sinasabi namin kay yaya. talo niya pa yung iba, kasi malinis na malinis na kanya yung 6k. wala kasi siyang ibang ginagastos.lahat toiletries sa akin and panglaba ng damit, merienda. si yaya naman hindi rin maluho.

planning to get an all around helper na rin.

meron kasi kaming weekend lady, mga 60+ na din ang edad. weekend lady na namin siya since high school pa lang ako. we pay her 700 a weeki. lately, gusto na 800 per week. siya ang nagrefer kay yaya, kasi kumare nya. pero nakakainisi, dadating pag gusto, uuwi na kapag gusto. kapag pinuna or tinuruan, agad agad na may excuse. tapos di naman naglilinis ng bahay. 800 per week= 3,600 na rin yun. konting kembot 4k na rin. palagi pa nagwawashing machine ng dmit pati mga undies kaya madali masira undies namin.

I remembered this thread after reading Alex Tizon's story on his family's slave. I remembered this thread because I had been amazed at the measly pay a typical kasambahay got. Tizon's story reminded me that even if not all Filipinos mistreat their kasambahay, it's still part of our culture to give them less than what they deserve and thing it's okay.

Anyway, I paid my parents' in-house helper 10k pesos + benefits every month for a year after my mom's surgery. The helper performed housekeeping duties, not nursing duties.

Min wage of kasambahay is diff from other employees, Thats bec theres free food and lodging. As of DOLE batas kasambahay 2016, min wage is 2500 for NCR, 1500-2000 for other municipalities.
Having considered that, our maids receives 5000 to 6500 a month.

Post by: fionaapple on May 31, 2017, 08:54:17 am
iba ang minimum wage ng mga kasambahay as compared to the minimum wage for other workers,.

The Kasambahay Law sets a minimum wage for your kasambahay: P2,500 if working within the National Capital Region (i.e. Metro Manila), P2,000 for chartered cities and first-class municipalities, and P1,500 for any other area in the country.

this is the minimum of course, so we are expected to give them wage not lower than these amounts. the minimum wage of kasambahays is lower than the ordinary wage-earner considering that they are provided with free food and they do not have to pay for housing, except for those maids /helpers who are under a "live-out" arrangement.

I remembered this thread after reading Alex Tizon's story on his family's slave. I remembered this thread because I had been amazed at the measly pay a typical kasambahay got. Tizon's story reminded me that even if not all Filipinos mistreat their kasambahay, it's still part of our culture to give them less than what they deserve and thing it's okay.

Anyway, I paid my parents' in-house helper 10k pesos + benefits every month for a year after my mom's surgery. The helper performed housekeeping duties, not nursing duties.

I have read Alex Tizon's article about their "Lola." i do not think we can compare the treatment that their househelp/slave got from Tizon's family with the way we treat our kasambahays. i do  not believe that most Filipinos give them less than what they deserve. the fact that not all of us can pay them as high as you do, does not mean we are giving them less than what they deserve.  in fact, many Filipinos treat their kasambahay like a family member.

in our case, we provide the same food to our yaya/maid, she has her own room with a comfortable bed and television. she can use the washing machine and our detergents for her own clothes. we provide her toiletries including bath soap, toothpaste, shampoo and conditioner. when we dine out, she can order (but yaya, out of modesty, always answers "kahit ano po."). when we go on a vacation, she doesn't sleep on the floor. she has her own bed and we pay for her meals also. when we are attending a formal event, we make sure she has proper clothes to wear. she has uniforms given to her by my mother-in-law, but we do not strictly enforce wearing of the uniform all the time.

different areas/subdivisions in metro manila or provinces have different wage "floors" especially if the place is a high-end subdivision. the wage also depends on "supply and demand." in neighborhoods where the incidence of "pirating" maids is high, the wage floor may go higher and the employers would also consider giving above average wages to make their maids think twice about leaving or transferring to other employers in the same neighborhood or community. for example, in dasmari?as village, the acceptable wage for maids is most definitely higher than a middle class village in pasig or quezon city.

the fact that you pay 10k to your maid is a good thing as it shows you might be wealthier than the average Pinoy. so good for you. but it doesn't mean that what we should be paying our maids the same amount. or that we treat our maids any less because we pay them less than 10k. or that those who pay their maids lower than the wage that you pay "have no business hiring maids." we have different neighborhoods, different backgrounds, different personal situations.

wow! grabe naman to. if ganito ang thinking ng mga tao ngayon, do you honestly think parents would go out and look for jobs rather than settle home and do everything themselves but yet at the end of the day, nganga dahil walang trabaho at pera? good for people like you na sobrang mayaman ang earns maybe 6-digit a month to afford such expense. you can go splurge into anything by all means. pero pano naman yung mga hindi kataasan ang sweldo who wants to work to provide better for the family pero walang maiwanan ng kids sa bahay? how do you think this solves employment for both the parents and the yaya? sometimes it amazes me how some people can really get mayabang.

also, majority of filipinos are taught good values. mahirap or mayaman ka man. it is expected more sa mga taong maraming pera because they can afford good schools who can teach them more. i read the same article you did, the author may not have learned those from his parents but being nice to other people especially those who are less fortunate than you is actually common sense.

i pay my yaya only half of what you do dahil yun lang afford ko. but that doesnt mean im abusing/taking advantage of her because of that. i call her by her first name. my son calls her ate. no one calls her yaya because we treat her as a member of our family. my son is 2 years old, she wakes up whenever my sons wakes up. if my son wakes up at 9am, she can sleep up to 9 am. she only takes care of him when im not around, washes his bottles, bathe him and watch over him when im asleep. ako nagpapakain at naglalaba ng mga damit ng anak ko. yun lang basically ang ginagawa nya sa bahay. she has access to wifi and can watch tv anytime she wants as long as wala syang ginagawa. naka off sya ng weekends.  we bring her around everytime we go out, eat out and watch movies. if i buy something for everybody, i get her something too. i provide for her toiletries from her shampoo to her napkins, pantyliners, deos and body sprays. whatever convenience we have, she has. she can eat anything in the pantry. she washes her clothes using the washing machine. everytime i change bedsheets, hers is changed to. kapag luma na masyado ang damit, towels and slippers nya, i get them those.
all these because i can work dahil naiiwanan ko sakanya ang anak ko. now tell me again i have no business hiring a househelp/yaya.

We pay 2k for our helper. Hindi sya live-in and visits us twice a week lang. She just needs to do the laundry, plantsa, gardening and linis bahay. Inuutusan din ng mom ko to buy groceries/palengke.

Some people have more than enough, so good thing if they can pay their helpers above minimum. Pero discretion pa rin ng magpapasweldo magkano ang kaya nyang ibayad at kung ano ang ginagawa ni helper for them.

My previous boss pays his driver 16k a month. Sabi nya, it's not because of the service but because of loyalty. Apparently, matagal na nyang driver yun at nauutusan nya even banking transactions nya. So kahit super sensitive and confidential tasks nagagawa nung driver nya. He doesn't consider him driver but assistant na nga.

My point is, I would not pay the helper more than what is due. We can give bonuses for a job well done, but not overpay them. Practicality lang din.

My neighbor pays her long time helper 15k, some do give their helpers a little bit more.  But do be careful on what you say or post because not everyone has the same capacity as you.  Most households need 2 or 3 at least.  Ang bigat nun.  You have to pay for everything pa like food and other things.

Sa agencies, starting salary is between 4500 to 5000.  Because of that, i decided to align the salary of my yaya of less than 1 year.  Napabilis nga increase niya kasi I had to align her salary sa new ones.  Supply and demand nga, right now, mahirap mag hanap ng maayos na helper so give what you can and treat them well.

still looking for a helper, 4000 initial kong inoffer, after 6 months gagawin ko 4500 then after a year 5000 na.

ako, 6k binigay kong starting sa all around ko. bantay din siya sa 2 years old ko. originally, dalawa sila, 4k each. kaso nagalit sakin yung yaya ng baby ko kasi 1.5 years na daw siya sakin pero hanggang 6k lang binigay ko sahod tapos nung nagkaroon na siyang kasama 5k nalang siya then nung nagrequest siya na uwian every weekend, saturday 6am to monday 8am ang leave niya, ginawa ko raw 4k.

feeling ko, tama naman ako pero the way niya ko binastos at ineskandalo saharap ng ibang tao dahil 4k na lang siya, napaisip ako kung ako ba talaga ang mali. well, in the end, umalis nalang siya.

so ayun, 6k muna dun sa all around then balak ko gawin 6.5k pag nag 1yr na siya.

anyway, ELLEN MAG-ASO VILLAMERO or ellaine villamero mag-aso from negros occidental yung name ng bastos kong yaya.  currently nasa malolos bulacan siya. kaya watch out kayo,warning lang. hehe

i have 2 new helpers now, starting salary is 5k..true, hirap na talaga humanap ngayon, madalas short term lang plano nila, tipong quick money lang or pambili lang ng cp then layas na LOL..this is the reason na sinabihan ko sila na pag di sila tumagal ng 6 mos, ikakaltas ko sa sahod nila yung pamasahe na binigay namin. pero may incentives naman kung tumagal ng 6 mos..sabi ko i will give a clothing allowance on their 7th month and every 6 mos therafter, 1k yearly salary increase, bonuses and if naka- 2 yrs sila, may brandnew cp sila basta not more than 10k ang price 😬 and we also shoulder their toiletries, snacks etc..so talagang yung sweldo nila buo nila makukuha, they dont have to buy anything na..magastos pero nakakastress kasi maghanap at magtrain nang paulit-ulit

^grabe ano, bigay na lahat tapos madalas sila pa ang demanding haha kakaloka sila

We recently hired a yaya for my daughter and we give her 4k as starting salary. Libre din lahat, food, toiletries. Tapos yung 13th month pay ipro-rate ko sya. Inexplain ko sa kanya kung magkano matatanggap nyang 13th month pag umabot sya sa end ng year. Then yung ibang benefits after 6 months, like salary increase, bday bonus, sss, philhealth. Although required and sss/philhealth sa kasambahay law, gusto ko lang ma make sure na magtatagal sya sa amin before ako magbayad for her

I have 2 helpers now, one yaya and one all-around/2nd yaya. I pay the all around 10k and the yaya 5k. The all-around one has been in my family since I was in high school, palipat-lipat lang ng family member na inaalagan. She has a higher salary because my baby was born premature and we needed someone who was knowledgeable in healthcare for emergency situations.

She used to be my grandparents' caregiver so she's very familiar with caring for the sickly. She was the primary yaya before we got the second yaya, nung medyo malaki na si baby at di na kelangan tutukan. Sadly, from the start, she never intended to stay long. She married na kasi and wants to return to her husband. She only stayed with us as a favor and emergency nga kasi. She leaves in December and she's helping me to find a replacement as an all-around para may katulong din yung maiiwang yaya. Buti na lang experienced din yung yaya na maiiwan. Sa kanya ako minsan humihingi ng advice for my son. =)

I've been hearing some yaya problems from my colleagues - yung biglang magpapaalam na uuwi pero di na babalik, nabuntis bigla, etc
Sana maconvince ko yung dati naming kasama sa bahay na bumalik kasi nagresign sya dahil nakapagjowa ng foreigner dati hehe

@rasee yeah sabi ko hnga nung malaman ko sa friend ko eh, mas malaki pa sahod nya kesa dun sa first job ko before haha.

@kv maybe. Im not sure though. Yung ibang maids naman nila sa house parang normal lang naman.  like yung isa assign sa garden and outer house nila. Yung isa laba ang plantsa lang. yung 2 linis lang ng house talaga sa Loob and yung isa mayordoma nila to check if lahat is maayos ang Pagkakagawa. But ang alam ko mayordoma nila malaki ang sahod talaga. Matagal na sa kanila si Nanay eh. I think since high school pa yung friend ko nasa kanila na sya. So di na iba sa kanila yung mayordoma nila.

5k monthly na yaya ng anak ko. Lately kase, "cross-functional" na siya hahaha.
My son is already 5 y/o, so hindi na alagain. But im keeping her kase kelangan din ng additional help para sa house chores. Main responsibility niya is lahat ng kelangan ng anak ko. Like magpapaligo, papakainin, tapos laba ng damit ng anak ko lang. Siya din naghahatid and sundo sa school.

May nap time din siya pag tulog anak ko, kase katabi ng mom ko matulog sa tanghali.
Umabot na siya sa 5k kase almost 5 years na sya sa amin.

Gusto ko kahit by June magstart na siya para may kasama lang ako sa bahay kasi hindi na ako masyado makakapagluto luto by then. So yung range pala ng yaya ngayon is  hindi na bababa ng 4k. Sana makahanap ako agad. *crossedfingers

Sinadya niya talaga na lakihan ang sweldo kasi pag mura wala na halos makuha kung meron man baka magnakaw. Matagal na sila sa mom ko more than 5years na.

^^^current kasambahay law requires 3500/month for metro manila, and 3k sa province. Pero ng dahil kay Tulfo who apparently mentioned in his show na 5-6k na daw dapat ang sahod ng kasambahay, eh di yun ang pinanghahawakan ng mga nag aapply ngayon. Irereklamo daw kay Tulfo pag mababa ang sahod  ;D

Yung stay out helper ko I give her 225 per day plus pamasahe, mag 6 months pa lang sya saken. She comes in at 8am until 6pm -- so sa bahay na sya nagbbreakfast, lunch, dinner, pati merienda.

As of today. Nasa 5,500 na ang sweldo plus SSS. 3 sila kasi yun 1 taga luto, yun 1 taga linis, yun 1 taga laba. Take note, yun taga laba may washing machine at may dryer, at mga big laundry like blanket sa labas namin pinapalaba per kilo, kasi hindi daw nya kaya. Kami na ang nag aadjust, mahirap kasi makakuha ng maids. Malalaki na mga anak ko 12 at 16, pero I have 5 dogs.

Post by: Apple1230 on May 01, 2018, 11:55:05 am
In my opinion tama lang din naman yung 6k up kasi imagine paano nila pagkasyahin ang 3-4k a month salary. Karamihan sa kanila nagpapadala ng money sa province nagpapa aral ng mga kapatid or may anak/mga anak na kailangan din buhayin.

Huwag na lang kumuha ng maid kung hindi afford ang 6k for humanitarian reasons na lang. kasi siguro kahit naman tayo kumikita ng 5digits yung iba 6digits nagkukulang pa nga sila pa kaya na kakarampot lang ang sweldo and mahirap din ang gawain bahay lalo na yung iba madaming anak tapos gusto all around yung helper.

Just my 2 cents sorry kung may ma offend. Kung hindi agree then ok lang let's respect everyone's opinion po.

Actually, its not just the 4Ps. Madami na din daw kase opportunity sa province. Sabi nung naglalaba samin, madami daw napapasukan sa Boracay (before its closure), kase may mall na dun tapos yun mga tindahan pa. Tapos may mga companies na nag-b-branch out sa Visayas, like ilo-ilo and cebu, and may mga malls na din.

^True importante that you can trust your helpers since they will be staying in your house, and kung yaya naman they will be taking care of your kid/kids.

We had a helper who has been with us for 28years, yaya siya ng brother ko and eventually became our cook and helper kasi malaki na brother ko. Nag increase na ng nag increase salary niya overtime umabot na siya ng almost 20k a month then kinuha din siya ng life insurance ng mom ko and nakabili na ng lupa at nakapagpatayo na ng house sa province nila.

Nung nag 50years old na siya nagka bf siya ng 36years old and dun na siya nag start mangupit. It even came to a point na may mga kamag anak pala siya na nakatira na sa kwarto niya. Nung umalis yung kamag anak yung bf naman niya pinapatulog niya dun. Sadly we had to let her go kasi hindi na rin siya nakakapag function ng maayos dahil pag nag aaway sila ng bf niya nagdadabog siya sa loob ng bahay, binabasag mga plato habang nag huhugas siya at pati kame hindi namin siya makausap ng maayos. Nakakalungkot pag ganun kasi we treat her as a family member already.

^may anak siyang may cerebral palsey and for a time the kid lived with us kaso namatay yung bata. Gusto niya sa province ilibing so my mom gave her 50k as separation pay and told her don't come back na sa province na lang tumira. But after a few months she is back sa house namin. Siguro kasi naubos na yung pera.

Pinaalis namin siya many years later pa kasi madami nang kasalanan. My mom did not give her money but she stole some stuff from us. We didn't know until she left. Kahit matagal na sayo wala talagang assurance na hindi gagawa ng masama.

4,500/mo helper namin. All around. No kids. Full auto naman washing machine namin and we don't iron out clothes. So mostly cleaning and cooking ang focus ni ate.

We give 13th month and equivalent to around 2 weeks (paid) leave per year aside from weekly day-off. Minsan iniipon nya rin day off niya kapag trip niya mag-out of town sa malapit with her family ganyan.

I've been bugging her about her SSS, Philhealth and Pagibig because it's required by law. Gusto niya i-cash ko na lang sa kaniya. Sabi ko hindi pwede. Matagal na kasi siya sa amin. Same age kami and single. Sabi namin kung wala siyang balak mag-asawa, the more na kailangan siya sss, philhealth and pagibig.

We provide toiletries, medicine.May sariling room, toilet and bath, proper bed and cabinet.

We also provide her bisyo: fast internet and lots of downloaded movies. LOL In relation to that, every other year, may gadget gift siya from my sibling and I.  Android phone lang naman for her (youtube) viewing pleasure. This year baka tablet naman. Para mas malaki naman pinapanooran niya.

The ones I get from the FB groups did not stay for more than 6 months.  Siguro most of them medyo marunong compared to the ones from the province. If marunong marunong na, tendency gusto narin umalis.  Yung isa naman nakuha namin taking advantage with excessive food, our marketing lowered tremendously when we let her go.

Hi, Sisses. I am just wondering, kasi we live in the province. We have a yaya na 5 years na sa amin. Stay-out. Per day ang bayad sa kanya so no work, no pay. Off nya ay Saturday, Sunday and Holidays. Paid ang Holidays niya kahit off siya.

Her salary is 5k a month just for pagbantay at alaga sa daughter ko and linis ng room lang. Plus 1k sa limang laba. Meaning 250/laba. Damit ko, daughter and hubby lang. Every Monday and Thursday yun. Plus mga kumot, towels, linens pero hindi naman madalas.

I give her pamasahe para pag susundo siya sa daughter ko. Diretso siya sa school ng daughter ko kasi ako na ang naghahatid pagpasok.

If ever naman sa house namin siya didiretso, hinahatid siya ng husband niya ng motor. Sinusundo din siya sa hapon.

Province kami sisses, and madaming nagsasabi na ang laki ng pasweldo namin to think na super gaan na lang ng work nya.
