Hello Community, My mom and I were wondering how to pay a housekeeper. She says you pay by the hour, but I say majority pay by each room or for the whole house itself, we have a bet going on to raise the stakes. But she is also wondering what amount is appropriate to pay the housekeeper. Our house has a family room, living room, dining room, 2 1/2 baths, and four bedrooms; we live in the Los Angeles area. So how do you pay her, by the hour or by the room/house and how much should we pay her. Best Regards, David Bushey
