The problem with your question, Lolitta, is that there is no place for debates nor discussion in your question. I mean, once there is an answer it becomes totally moot.

Maybe you could have made a little thinking and ask as a secondary question "how to negotiate the wage" so people could make funny comments, but no, you decided to ask a closed question that buries other questions with the potential to be funny. It's really no surprise that after 12 hours, nobody answered it.

It seems you want to get your points (maybe you need a VPN) but please, as part of the community, you should work your way to make this website a fun place and not a low tier version of google.

As a pointer, here's a nice question you should ask yourself before clicking the "submit" button : "would I ask this question if I was in a gathering with friends?" The answer for the avg wage of an ayi is obviously "no", so please refrain.

I would downvote your question if it was possible (take note, admins!)

Fair pricing I think.

It will depend heavily on the type of work you wish them to do, the frequency of their visits and the length of time you employ them.  If a part time for a couple of weeks, or just a couple of days per week, salary requested will be higher if it is a long term arrangement, every day type of job offer.

 

But I will say that depending on the work to be done, like if it includes cleaning, laundry and cooking, you will be expected to pay from 15 to 20 Rmb per hour worked, plus meals.  And if the ayi is the live-in type, monthly salary should start in the 2500 to 3000 Rmb range

It depends on where you live, how you get her and as previously people said in how you negotiate, how often she goes and what she does.

 

It wont be the same price in Zhangjiang (perhaps many people don't even know what is that haha), People's square & Gubei.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
