The other day I met up with a friends daughter (who is 29 years old). She looked kind of distressed and pissed off so I asked her what was wrong. She was offered a job at a small start up advertising agency. She was offered $4.000 per month (in hand, en blanco). This is a person who at 29 almost 30 has never had a job before, she has spent almost the last 10 years studying at the university of Buenos Aires then travelling, to the US, Europe, and around South America all financed by her parents of course. She is expecting a much much higher salary at least 7K and doesn't consider herself entry-level. She asked me what I thought and I told her if I were her I would accept it and keep looking if I wasn't happy with the job and/or salary. The ONLY reason she had started looking for a job in the first place it because my friend (her mother) told her honey it's time you either start your career or get married. She started looking for a job 7 months ago, hasn't had even 1 single offer until this one and lives rent free, on her own in an apartment owned by her Mother. Anyway to link this story to the subject matter of what maids are paid, one of her remarks during our conversation was "4.000 pesos is about 25 pesos per hour, which is what I am paying the lady who cleans my apartment".......so do I have to explain any further about people's attitudes here??
