Need someone every other week for 2.5 hrs.(one person).  The afternoon to clean 1.5 bathrooms, kitchen floor and wood floors on the first floor (wood cleaner provided).  Position paying $20.00/ hr. Which equals per the U.S. labor Dept. a $41,600.00 position; $20/ hr x 40 hours x 52 weeks = $41,600/yr.   

I am paying $50.00 to do this job.

Per my understanding and belief,  person still does not have to claim on taxes (most ladies want cash) and then receives federal/ state tax breaks to include free taxpayer medical benefits in New Jersey.  Their children also receive $15,000/ yr. for each child’s education plus a free breakfast and lunch Daily; legal or not.   The hardworking NJ and U.S. taxpayers pay, have compassion.

If interested, please respond. 

Information for Potential Employers:Ladies, be aware!

Before you read below, please remember, on this website, someone named Ana subscribed and asked for a cleaner paying $8.00/hr, not fiction.  And guess what, she might have charged you, $20-30/ hr., the employer.  She was looking for employees and posted.  Who knows?

For cleaning LLC agencies, please let the employer know what you are paying the employee.  Tell the employer who pays you.  Ladies beware, the agency shall charge you over $30.00/hr. and only pay their employees $8-12.00/ hr.  The owner makes the $$, and does not do much work and writes things off on their taxes via a LLC company.  This is not fiction, fact.  As women, we get this.  Everyone be fair and kind.  We are business women.

Just think $30/hr. X 40 hrs. X 52 weeks = $62,400/yr. cash.  Must be nice.  Some companies charge more.  Pay attention.  The owner is not always cleaning.  And they get a tax write-off on their car mileage, etc.  Please remember, some people who come and clean receive $15,000/ yr. per child for education, legal or illegal.  This comes from the hardworking taxpayers of NJ.

Per our United States Labor Dept., cleaning/ housekeeping services to wipe and swipe averages $17.00/hr. X 40 hrs./week x 52 weeks = $35,360.00/ year.  If one does more, more $$.

Some agencies are charging $200 per household for two people, total four hrs.   So two households per day x 5days/week times 52 weeks = $104,000/yr.

If the employee only gets $12/hr. $12 x 40 x 52 weeks = $24,960 cash.  Guess what, one employee, the owner just made $79,040 cash.  If two employees, $54,140.00 cash for the owner.  Must be nice.  Not sure about state and federal taxes paid out.  Most of us went to college to earn this kind of $$.

We need to keep things in line for what someone is really employed for.  You can see the difference even during Covid.

Hopefully this information helps.  Be kind to the “real” workers.  Do not let the employer “abuse” the employees.  There is an area in Newark/ Harrison, NJ where ladies gather to be picked up to do this work.  Remember the issue In Morristown several years ago with labor workers; hit national news.
