MizBrown Posted December 31, 2020 Share Posted December 31, 2020 My helper did a deep cleaning of the house and washed two loads of clothes, then we ordered pizza to be delivered and he walked my dog. Paid him C$100 extra (roughly $3.50), so C$500 for today's work, which sounds like nothing to most of my friends in the US and like too much for some Nicaraguans and pinche gringos who'd pay $5 US or room and board for a day of work. About a year ago, I found out he was living off part-time work for me and another woman who wasn't using him that much, so asked my British friend if he could help her and he's been working for us as a dog walker and shopper. This has been very beneficial for all of us. We've also kept him in cell phones and my British friend has covered some medical expenses (he has a heart mummer which is apparently not as bad as it was). He's working on finishing high school on weekends, and if he's willing, Jinotega has some college programs here in branches of some Leon and Managua universities. 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
