P/T helper situation

Postby movingtospore » Sun, 05 Jul 2015 9:23 pm

Just wondering if there are any opinions out there on whether or not the p/t maid situation has improved/worsened or is still the same. A couple years ago I tried to find a reliable p/t (legal) maid and eventually gave up. Too unreliable, didn't do a good job, etc etc.

Going to try again sometime soon. Any recent experience from those on the forum?

Sorry, no recent experience, we gave up on our ptm ~2y ago, but I don't think anything changed in the meantime. It's mostly about the working culture and perceived work quality, less about the individuals. What you think is dirty is clean for them (they cleaned it not to be confused with they made it clean).
