The family I work for has gone through 3 cleaning ladies in the 7 months I have worked for them... Either because they were not happy with the quality of cleaning or because they thought the cleaning person "charged too much". Now I put that in quotations because the family I work for has NO IDEA how much work it is to clean their GINORMOUS house with ALL WOOD FLOORS. They have consistently asked cleaning ladies to do too much for too little pay... So I offered to ask someone that my husband and I know to come and clean and see how much she would charge. The woman works with my husband and does cleaning as a second job. She cleaned a "flip house" for my husband and I and we were very happy with her work. She does and AWESOME job and does not charge nearly as much as the other cleaning ladies they have had in the past. The family I work for pays her $100 to come every other week and do the WHOLE (7000+ square foot) house. That is a deal if I have EVER seen one! They also offered to have her come on the "off" week and do JUST the main floor (kitchen, living room, etc.) for $50 dollars and she gladly accepted.
Well, 2 weeks ago, the cleaning lady was supposed to do JUST the main floor and then they asked her to also do the master bath (for NO extra pay). She did and did not say anything... But now this week they asked the same thing (main floor, master bath) AND the guest bathroom for only $50 dollars!!!! They offered NO EXTRA PAY! I am a little angry about this because she is someone that I know and I do not want her being taken advantage of... Is it my business to step in and say something? I have asked the cleaning lady and she says it is "okay" but I can tell it isn't and I don't want her to stop showing up because she is being over worked and under paid... What to do?!?!
