Well-Paid Maids is ahead of the curve. Not only is the cleaning company leading the charge by paying their employees (yes, employees — not contractors) a living wage of at least $20 an hour, but they also implemented a company-wide vaccine mandate in mid-August, well before the Biden administration’s decision.
Now, Well-Paid Maid’s entire staff is fully vaccinated.
The mandate came after months of offering employees vaccine incentives, including emergency paid leave to get their vaccine and recover from side effects. Additionally, employees could get a $100 cash bonus as well as company-paid transportation to and from vaccine sites.
When it comes time for booster shots, paid time off is already getting scheduled.
“We are known for taking care of our staff, which is why we offer a living wage and a full benefits package,” said founder Aaron Seyedian. “But it’s also important for us to take care of our customers, which is why we made this move.”
Additionally, all Well-Paid Maid employees will continue to wear masks in your home (and they ask you to do the same when sharing space with them).
You can learn more about Well-Paid Maids’ vaccine policy in a recent New York Times article and over on CNN.
