A live-in maid in the San Francisco section of Panama City would earn about $350 a month, based on a 6-day workweek, and they do a good job.
If your housekeeper is live-in, you feed them, provide them a place to sleep, and there are no set work hours. If they don’t live there, how much you would pay really depends how many hours a day you want them to work. For example, if you had a cleaning lady that just came by and spent 3 to 4 hours in your home cleaning, you would probably pay $25 to $30 for that cleaning.
