When a housekeeper does a job well, she’ll get more money for it.
In a survey by the US government, the average hourly wage of a housekeepers was $7.50.
But when they didn’t do a job at all, the median wage dropped to $5.25 per hour.
That’s a big difference, says the University of Michigan economist Daniel Horowitz.
The median hourly wage for a full-time, part-time and temporary worker is $7 per hour, he says.
What is a house cleaning job?
The jobs are usually part-timers, part contractors and part salespeople.
The jobs involve cleaning, dusting, washing, vacuuming, dust-removal, dishwasher and other household tasks.
They include: sweeping, vacumating, sweeping in the house, dust collection, dust removal, vacuum cleaning, vacuating, and cleaning the floors.
A housekeeper typically works eight hours per day.
They usually work two days a week and may be paid for the work on Saturdays, Sundays or holidays.
The average housekeeping salary for a part-timer is $10 per hour and for a contractor is $9.25.
It can range from $8 per hour to $16 per hour for a salesperson, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
A full-timer typically works 40 hours per week, working an average of 40 hours a week.
They typically work six days a month.
The typical housekeeping pay is $15 per hour or more.
A part- and full-timer will be earning $25 to $30 per hour in their current job.
The hourly wage can vary depending on the size of the job and the type of job, Horowitz says.
Most housekeepers in the US are employed part time, working from home, and are expected to be paid on the hour.
They earn an average hourly salary of $11 per hour on average.
However, there are exceptions to this, Horowitz said.
The minimum wage in California is $12.50 per hour according to state law.
Horowitz says if you are a part time housekeeper and have a high school diploma or GED you should be paid $10 an hour.
If you are an older housekeeper who has completed your schooling and is earning less than $15 an hour, you can also make more money.
However the minimum wage varies by job type.
For instance, housekeepers are usually paid $11.50 an hour on the hourly wage and they may be able to negotiate higher wages for their services, Horowitz added.
How much will you make?
If you work from home and your hours are flexible, you could earn anywhere from $15 to $50 per day depending on your age and experience, Horowitz told ABC News.
Most part- time housekeepers will get paid on weekends and holidays, he said.
However some may have to work more than 12 hours per night because they have to move or move the house.
You may have a choice of a part, full- or temporary housekeeper.
The majority of housekeepers earn $15, $17, $20 or $25 per week.
Housekeepers may earn more depending on how much they’re paid and how long they stay on the job.
