Want a clean home with a clean conscience? Use NYC’s New Living-Wage Cleaning Service! [Sponsored]

Posted on: May 3rd, 2022 at 9:32 am by

As you may already know, the cleaning industry has terrible practices. Companies overwork and underpay their employees, many of whom are misclassified as contractors and receive no benefits or legal protection. This kind of business model is bad for employees, bad for customers, and, ultimately, bad for society.

Well-Paid Maids, New York’s only accredited living-wage home cleaning company, is working to change that. We believe that everyone who works hard should be able to support themselves and that every worker deserves respectful treatment from their employer. That’s why all of our employees make $26 per hour to start and receive a full benefits package including health, dental, and vision insurance, 100% employer-paid commuting costs, and 22 paid days off per year. By operating in a way that matches your values, we aim to provide a service you can feel good about using.

Reserve an appointment today with one of our happy, hard-working, background checked, masked, fully-vaccinated (and boosted!) employees and help us demonstrate that a living-wage business can succeed in one of the city’s most exploitative industries.

To learn more, check out our coverage in the New York Times and on CNN, send us an email, or give us a ring at (212) 847-1369. We look forward to cleaning for you soon!
