Rates vary by neighborhood: from ten pesos in the suburbs, to fifteen downtown, plus transportation. Ask your neighbors what's the going rate for your part of town.sergio said:I'd like an update on the going rate (per hour) for domestic cleaners. Does the rate include transportation costs?
When I asked locals they told me they were paying 15 peso per hour while I was paying 13 at the time, except those who have full time workers. For full time they are paying about 9 per hour, which is scandalous!sergio said:I've been asking people - Argentines. They tell me no more than $12 plus transportation. This is for Barrio Norte. I can't see how neighborhood is a factor. Most cleaning personnel travel long distances to work - often up to two hours each way. Are expats paying more because they choose to be generous? I'm just trying to get an idea of what is normal for the local market.
