local combi fare/Raising Wages

by BL @, Monday, September 19, 2022, 21:08 (14 days ago) @ Talley Ho

We currently pay our maid and gardener 400 pesos for their day's work, usually about 6 hours. They leave when their work is finished.

They have been with us for almost 5 years, and started at 250 per day, but within about 5 months, went up to 400. Our big discussion right now is do we go to 450 or 500?

Is there a guide for how often raises are given? He thinks it should be on a semi regular basis, but I'm leaning toward cost of living. We'd love some input.

We normally adjust wages at the beginning of the year. We pay the woman that works at our house a set amount per month, disbursed twice a month, and then additional daily pay when we or visitors are there. That way we have two levers. And yes, we give more aguinaldo than required by law and we pay for her seguro social.
