Housekeepers and Maids

Advancement Prospects

Other than wage increases, there are few advancement opportunities for maids—especially in households with only a few workers.

Maids may choose to leave household service to pursue similar positions at hotels and other businesses. These employers typically offer higher salaries and more fringe benefits than do private employers.
