If I had the money to hire someone to clean my house, I wouldn’t need a damn “app for that.” I could throw a stone out my front door and hit fifteen or twenty people eager to clean my house, mow my lawn, deal with my scraggly oak trees, do my laundry, and any other job I could pay them ten dollars an hour to do.
Unless you are willing to exploit undocumented immigrants, house-cleaning (vacuuming, dusting, floor-washing and nothing else) goes for $120-$180. And it obviously doesn’t take 12 hours. Lawn-mowing is $40 but I’ve heard urban myths about somebody somewhere getting it done for $30. It’s a 20-minute job, not a 3-hour one. Handyman work is $40 per hour or $35 if the guy really likes you.
Mind you, I think this is great. Workers should not be exploited and should be able to make a decent living. But it gives you a little glimpse into why our ideological betters are so into bringing in undocumented immigrants.
