The average housekeeper costs $11,907 per year, according to an average of the most recent data compiled by the National Association of Housekeeping Employees.
Housekeeping companies that have their own certification programs and/or contracts with employers typically offer lower prices, while housekeepers who work for a nonprofit or government agency typically make more than that.
But housekeepers working for nonprofit organizations, for example, typically receive higher compensation.
The National Association for Housekeeping employees said that average salary for an average household with two-income earners is $12,077 per year.
The salary for a family with four earners is about $15,000 per year or $20,000 for an individual.
Housekeepers with four or more earners receive an average salary of $27,817, and housekeepers with one or fewer earners earn $16,097 per month, according the data.
Housekeeper salaries vary greatly depending on their job and their geographic location.
Some are paid in hourly wages, while others are paid on a per-hour basis.
A worker in San Francisco, for instance, typically earns about $22 an hour, or about $12 per hour for someone working in a warehouse or a restaurant, according data from the American Association of Realtors.
A housekeeper working in Seattle, for one, makes about $17 an hour.
That figure is similar to the salary for those who work in the hospitality industry.
Some workers in the U.S. are paid more than others.
The average wage for a housekeeper in New York City is about five times the national average.
In Austin, Texas, the median salary is about 10 times the U,S.
And a worker in Portland, Oregon, who has a master’s degree and works in a nursing home, makes more than a housewife with no experience.
Households who earn less than $22 per hour typically work as housekeepers for people with low incomes, such as people who are on Medicaid or food stamps.
Housemaids in New Orleans who work as domestic help also often earn more than housekeepers in places like San Francisco or Portland, Ore.
Some housekeepers receive a pay raise once they get certification, but many don’t.
For example, the average salary is $28,823 for a domestic helper who has been certified as a housekeeping company.
The median pay is about 15 times the median pay for an employee with no certification.
Many housekeepers also receive a raise once the certification is completed, but the pay doesn’t last.
For example, a housemaid in Los Angeles who had been certified in the city but had worked in a hotel for a year received a raise to $27.55 per hour from $22.85 per hour, according a recent analysis by the nonprofit advocacy group Fair Wage LA.
The housekeeper who had worked as a maid in Chicago for a decade received a $29.99 hourly wage.
