Hi, I am looking to hire a Filipina maid with some working experience. As far as I know Indonesian maids will accept no day off if you are willing to pay an extra of $20 on top of her current pay. However, almost 90% of the filipina maids will insist of having at least 2 days off in each month (some will request 1 day off weekly). So if you do not like the idea of giving maid day off, you might want to consider maids of other nationality.
As for pay, filipina maids with some experience, usually they expect their pay to be slightly higher. I've know a few friends whose filipina maids are degree holders in the Philippines and some even have nursing degree. So for them to request at least $100-200 more from say Indo maids, I suppose it is reasonable.
I am currently having my confinement and will only go back to work in October, so I still have some time to hunt/interview the right helper to take care of my baby. My family is small (just 3 persons) so we do not need the maid to do cooking; her main duties are taking care of the baby and do housework.
Best of luck to you in hiring a good maid.
