    What is fair Compensation for P/T Helper?

    Can someone please advise what would be fair weekly compensation for a P/T helper that works 5 days a week (M-F) from noon - 6. Her duties include maintaining the house, cooking, cleaning, grocery shopping.

    Thank you.

    HK 55-60 an hour is the going rate, I think.

    HK$60, sometimes plus reasonable travel (bus or MTR) expenses if she is travelling far.

    it will be quite difficult to find a legal part time helper from the PH, unless she is a permanent resident or a dependent.

    my legal part-time (local, not from PH), i started @ $55/hour for 2 hours/day. after 3 months she went up to $70/hour, for 2-3 hours/day, 5 days/week.

    she's been with me for almost 4 years. i pay her more because (1) she's good, (2) she doesn't need to be micromanaged, (3) she's flexible --- does more hours if more are needed, (4) she's reliable ---she's missed 1 day of work in the past 4 years.
