Before you go and employ the service of an 僱傭中心 (employment agency) ,you must be careful in making sure that your expenses or your expenditures generally are far less than your total income. Many people make the mistake of wanting to be like others and so they just jump into employing the services of maid employment agencies. One has to be careful how he or she spends, because any one that will be wealthy has to spend less than he earns, as the saying goes that only a foolish man spends more than he earns. It is only a reasonable risk to spend more than you earn, when you want to make an investment.
It is good that any employer should sit down and calculate his or her economic capacity, and know his or her financial facts before jumping into employing the services of any Filipino maid (菲傭) or maid employment agency (僱傭中心). Asides, the salary that will be paid to the foreign domestic helpers, one will also have to provide accommodation for them and even feeding. Having them on a long term contract, one can see that he or she has to be financially buoyant before he can use them, because they cannot be hungry and you expect them to work. Their accommodation and their meals go along with them working with it, and that does not include their salary.
As you can see that Foreign domestic helper hiring expenditure (外傭)goes beyond just the salary you send over to their agency, it include the cost of feeding and accommodating them for the time that they will spend in your house or apartment. This is true for any kind of agency whether HL&C (康樂居) or not, and is the sole reason some people go for private maids that will go to their nearby house after each day’s work.
