Hired Two Local Chinese College Girls Today For $117 a Month, Low Cost China Labor

Hired two local college girls today to help out around the house, cooking, cleaning, helping the kids with Chinese homework, they will work 4 hours a day X 5 days a week. I will be paying them 800RMB ($117.00) per month each, that is around 10RMB ($1.46) per hour, and payed once every 30 days. In China the labor is very cheap and believe it or not, this is about double the per hour rate of 5RMB ($0.73) offered in this area. They seemed very happy when I saw them today, and were excited about starting work, hopefully they can cook good, fingers crossed! I will find that out later today and give everyone an update after they make us lunch. I will also share with you a little more about the girls and tell you how I found them.
