This would vary greatly depending on how many hours and day they worked and what duties they performed.

There is no such thing as an hourly rate for a pembantu.

Rates of pay have serious variables.

Some pembantu are totally hopeless, whilst others are brilliant.

Hiring a pembantu and working out what to pay them is really quite complex and expats can often get involved in all sorts of unexpected complexities.

Maybe I should not have answered it at all as to give a short answer with an hourly rate would be entirely misleading and unhelpful as there really is no such thing.

Have a look at the pages and pages of discussion on the subject on the expat forums and that will soon become apparent.
