Last time we went to the Yucatan, we hired a local woman to help with our baby for a few days. She never gave us a price and insisted we came up with one. I'm pretty sure we were way up there by her insistence to come back .....
I've looked on the web for the answer to this question but no luck.... What is a typical hourly salary for a Mexican worker? I've read that some people work for no wages, tips only (like grocery baggers) but couldn't find any indication of the average wage.
We are going back to IM in a week, this time with 3 kids under 5 (call us 'loco'!) and would like to hire some help again. I read on the forum that Tiffany from Barlito's may have some contacts. We are curious in the meantime to have some insight on what would be a fair wage to give these ladies.
If you have any others or stories to share about babysitting, please do!
