Most Companies Treat Cleaners Like Crap (Book This One Instead)
The cleaning industry has dirty practices. Companies offer bargain-basement discounts and do everything they can to cut costs. They hire contractors, not employees. They cram tons of appointments into each day. They pay low wages with no benefits.
Not surprisingly, their cleaners are overworked, underpaid, and stressed out. The end result is to be expected – hurried and lackluster cleanings by people who hate their jobs. If you want a truly clean home, you should hire a company that treats its employees well: Well-Paid Maids.
Founded in 2017, Well-Paid Maids recently expanded to New York City. They start all their employees here at $26 per hour plus benefits: 22 paid days off, health, dental, and vision insurance, and 100% employer-paid commuting.
By creating an ethical alternative, they provide customers with a service that matches their values. Not only is it the right thing to do, it means they employ the happiest, hardest-working folks in the business. People like Nishad, below, who joined Well-Paid Maids in 2018. Click here to hear him explain how working with the company changed his life.
And they don’t just look out for their own workers. Since its founding, Well-Paid Maids has advocated for higher minimum wages, Medicare for All, salary disclosure requirements, domestic workers’ rights, and paid leave in city councils, state legislatures, and Congress. Below, you’ll see their founder, Aaron Seyedian, posing with AOC after giving testimony to support a federal paid family and medical leave bill.
Ready to see the difference a living wage makes? Book an appointment today and help them demonstrate that a living-wage business can succeed in one of the city’s most exploitative industries. All their cleaners are background-checked, masked, and fully-vaccinated & boosted. Use code BKMAG to get $20 off.
