Dont lure away my cleaning help

Its erev Pesach and you planned to change over tomorrow night, you scheduled your cleaning lady to come, she doesn't show up. She never missed a day and didn't call in sick. You find out another desperate yiddeneh offered her more money to come clean by her. This is not hypothetical but its actually happening again. People are paying close to $17 an hour for cleaning help taking away cleaning help from the people who have them on a steady basis. Poskim debate the issue if its Assur al pi halacha. However think of the tzaar caused on someone else who is left with no cleaning help forced to work twice as hard, is that the feeling you want going into the Pesach seder?

  3. It may be wrong, but if you take care of your cleaning lady she will turn them down
    Think about it, of someone offered me $50 an hour to work for one Day and not show up to work, I wouldn't take the offer. It's because I have a good boss. If you treat your cleaning lady with respect, she will respect you too.

  6. What is the crime here? It is not illegal. Even so, there is a pervasive attitude with some in our town that one can do anything legal or illegal and deny it is a chillul hashem. We must be better than this.

  8. It's disgusting to poach another person's employees. However, all gedarim seem to be here in order to be broken If it's respecting someone else's right to a parnassa or someone's right to be confident that they have cleaning help that is criticial for their sanity. Kol d'alim g'var. Maybe we have what to improve on. But regarding hiring cleaning ladies, I am dan l'chaf z'chus our community,becasuse the cleaning ladies enjoy manipulating the market when demand is high and pretend to be available when in fact they are employed, but know they can demand a higher rate or more convenient hours.
