Hi, I’m Molly Moran with green sweep here in Albuquerque New Mexico, the leader in green house cleaning. The question is: “how much of the price charged to clean goes to the cleaners?”
Our cleaners are paid by the hour, not by the job, so unfortunately this is an impossible question to answer. However, I can tell you that we pay our cleaners to drive to and from all jobs, as well as for all their time at a client’s home. In Albuquerque, a living wage ordinance passed that is significantly higher than the federal minimum wage.
Treating staff fairly is a cornerstone of our values here at Green sweep. We have always paid much higher than the minimum wage, and now most of our employees make more than the living wage. All employees also receive paid time off and flexible scheduling to support their home lives.
