I had one when I was working full time. She was a treasure - even did the ironing and changed the beds.
One day I let slip at work that I had a cleaning lady and from the reaction I got you'd have thought I was sending 7 year old children up chimneys! The fact that I paid her a fair wage didn't seem to matter - I was employing a servant
and that was beyond the pale!
Why? She was earning a wage by cleaning for other people who needed her help and she did it well. And I was very grateful. How is that demeaning?
