Yesterday i did a cleaning job ( 2 floors penthouse)
The job took me 3 and a half hours and i was paid 20 Euros = approx 15 GBP
LIST OF DUTIES
2 SHOWER ROOMS INCLUDING TILED WALLS
ALL FLOORS SWEEPED AND WASHED
3 DOUBLE SLIDING DOORS
Do you think this is worth it?
I pride myself on my cleanliness and i know i did a good job,this was my first kinda job in years and now i feel deflated and annoyed that i let someone use me like this.August 17, 2015 at 13:55 #3316
No definitely not, politely tell them to go to hell. and hand back to 20 euros telling them they obviously need it more than you do.
That is just over £4 per hour, almost half the minimum wage here.

Thanks Lulu , i was just filling in for my friend who gets paid more for the same job, but hoped it might lead onto other jobs , i dont mind cleaning , i was just looking for something to pass my time and yes the money does matter too, but i feel im worth more than that. xxxAugust 17, 2015 at 19:17 #3329
hi Catherine ….is this work in Cyprus?
do you know if they have a minimum wage there? as here it is £6.50 atm
ps in UK for cleaning its approx £10 an hour !!!! and about quarter of that work!!!!
NOOOOOO they treated you appallingly!!!! for all that work and only those hours NO WAY !!!!!!
I do believe they were jsut trying to get all their SPRING CLEANING DONE FOR AS LITTLE AS THEY COULD.
YOU ask around with references and i am sure you will get very good paid work for cleaning..
DONT UNDERESTIMATE YOURSELF!!!!……you can do it……and others will APPRECIATE YOU TOO …August 17, 2015 at 19:38 #3332
its not in cyprus, ellie, shed get way more than that there (cyprus is rich).
but its common wages for such a job in greece, my guess is malta isnt very much different. if you got that for 3,5 hours, cath, i would have worked there happily in my darker days. i worked in a hotel for 20 euro per day (10 hours) and that was heavy duty and on call only. if you complain they dont care, there are 20 more standing in line for your job if you dont want it. tough, but thats the truth.
ellie, you cant compare it to the Uk, thats how things work in other parts of the world, i worked for 750 euro per month for 8 years, thats about 532 pound and i had to raise two kids and pay for everything from that, rent, electricity, water, bus fares, food and what have you.
things work differently in those countries-
i make about twice this much now in my job here in germany and im considered underpaid, needless to say im thankful for what i make now and am far better off. having next to nothing makes you appreciate when you do better eventually.
cath, itll all come round for you, just keep at it and keep going onwards and upwards.August 17, 2015 at 21:36 #3335
Catherine , make Dex do his own cleaning if that is all he pays you !August 17, 2015 at 23:45 #3340
Yes your right Anette, but its wrong to treat people like that , i should confront her but i wont, i just wont do it again, ive learned my lesson and yes i will move onwards and upwards.August 18, 2015 at 06:29 #3343
Come and clean for me Catherine, I dont have any money, so I cant think how I wid pay you
