Should I have to clean my employers mothers’ house.?
I am employed as a housemaid (live in) and my employers mother recently moved from out of state to live about 5 mins. from where I work. I am required to go to her house 1 day a week to clean and do laundry and other housework. I don’t mind, but two things I think are not good. First I have one less day to get through all the housework at my employers house. Ma’am said she would help out but so far has done little to help. Second I only get $ 20.00 extra for doing it. I know I am not working any extra hours but I have to do the same in less time, I have even done some ironing on my day off (without telling) as I don’t want her to think I can’t cope. Because I only go one day there is a lot to do, I think she likes having a “maid” there and sort of plays the “boss” thing. The day I work there, I think she has her friends come for a chat so they can see “her” maid. I normally I wear a uniform (dress and apron) so I do at her house as well, she insists I answer the door when someone comes so I can show them in. I have given little hints that I think I should stop going, but after every time when I come back I get told how appreciative they are that I go there and how her mother “couldn’t do without me”. Any suggestions on how to get back to having just “one” job..

If they “appreciate” how well you treat their mother, shouldn’t you be there when she needs you?
If you are spending a day at the daughters, you are neglecting the mother, true?
Don’t let this person abuse you as a cheap maid.
Does the mother know or is she mentally disabled?
