Roughly $15/hour if you have a part time maid come in (local), or around $1000/month all in if you have a foreign worker/domestic helper who lives in.

"All in" includes Salary, Government Levies, insurances, bonds, additional food costs, holidays, vacation, bonuses etc.

A search of this forum will give you a breakdown of costs for the foreign domestic.
