Well-Paid Maids is the D.C. area’s only living-wage home cleaning service.

All of our staff members are employees, not contractors. They earn a living wage of at least $17/hour and receive a full benefits package, including health, dental, and vision insurance, unemployment insurance, workers’ compensation insurance, disability insurance, paid family leave, 100% employer-paid commuting costs and 22 paid days off annually (5 sick, 2 holiday and 15 vacation).

Paying a living wage benefits our business in many ways. It improves recruiting. It reduces turnover. It increases service quality. It motivates customers. Those are all great things, but they aren’t why we do it.

Take a moment, scroll up, and read the interview with Clarence, who joined us this month and is off to a fantastic start.

He’s polite, friendly and hard-working, and we’re very lucky to have him on our team. Customers love his work, which comes as no surprise — he works hard every day to provide the best cleaning service possible. As you can see from the interview, he also has big goals that he’s working to achieve.

But how can he achieve his goals if his job doesn’t pay enough to live on? How can he realize his dreams if he can’t save money?

Clarence is why we pay a living wage. He deserves it. All workers do.
