Wages for Maids

Wages for Maids.
 
Excerpt from the Arab News: The monthly minimum salary stipulated by the Indonesian Government was increased from SR600 ($160) to SR800 ($213) last year. With this salary, maids are supposed to be provided room/board, health care, one day off per week, and a round-trip ticket home every other year.
 
Some maids are more expensive, others are cheaper..it all depends on how many days/hours a week you’ll need her, tasks you’d like her to perform, etc. This is just to give you insight on price ranges. Allaahu Aa’lam.
