I have difficulty in keeping the housemaid in my country. I used to spoil them by providing them all those goodies such as a nice room of their own, shower with hot water, buy them snacks whenever I have a chance, treating them as if they were one of my families. Sadly, I failed and I started to look at myself that caused the high turnover. But none so I blamed it on my luck.
My friend gave me advice jockinly said the secret of retaining maids is to win their hearts and souls. Put the love on them and they will never leave you .... if you know what I mean. I didn't take his advice as my wife is a very jealous woman. Also I'll never cheat on her.
Sorry, come back to my question. I know money is not only the solution but caring also. In my country, the demand in housemaid is much higher than the supply. Many here are also facing this kind of people. We used to try service from the agent but we found out that they were mostly unreliable.
