A hospital in Illinois will pay you $10,000 for the job of housekeeping, but not if you have an existing home or a vacant home, according to a new guide to cleaning.
Hotel rooms are no longer a great source of employment for housekeepers.
The new guide from the Association of Private Home Care Agencies recommends that you hire a contractor instead.
“You can hire a private home care contractor who is able to perform housekeeping duties for a maximum of $15,000 per year, and you can hire another contractor who has the same work experience, skills and experience as your housekeeper,” the guide states.
“Your contractor must be licensed and have a valid certification.”
This is just the latest example of the increasing popularity of private home-care contractors.
A number of states and cities have passed laws to require contractors to have certain credentials, such as being a licensed medical practitioner, a certified nurse anesthetist or certified social worker.
It also requires that the contractors be licensed.
In addition, the Affordable Care Act requires the federal government to provide a minimum wage for home-caring workers.
