    Looking for a part-time helper

    Hi moms, I am looking for a part-time helper just to clean. Twice a week, one hour every time. Time is flexible. Is $40/hour reasonable?

    I think you'll find most part-time helpers will want to work at least 3-4 hours each time in order to make their time worthwhile. I believe going rate is around $60/hr.

    Yes I think you'll struggle to get help at that price and for that hour twice a week, a way around it may be to ask the amahs in your building to see if they want to pick up an extra hour or two (that way they won't have the travel costs/inconvenience factors ect)

    local ladies who do the cleaning, gardening around the apartment complex. sometimes they want to make a bit of money on the side. also refers to local chinese helpers who cook/clean ect for local families.
