Re: Who would have had to quit their job to look after baby Miral?

If you were willing to pay someone a million dollars a year too look after your baby... You would expect to get your moneys worth, but if you're only willing to pay minimum wage or a fraction of minimum wage to an undocumented worker, shouldn't you be terrified that you are getting your moneys worth in dedication and professionalism?
A couple years ago I knew a recent immigrant to this country from South Africa, he was a university lecturer. He rang me up one day telling me his wife wanted to go back to work full time and did I know anyone who would like to do full time childcare of their baby. I asked him how much he would be paying and he said, two dollars an hour. I told him a ten year old gets paid more to walk a dog
