Cuban Woman Shares Her Earnings from House Cleaning in the U.S.

Monday, May 13, 2024 by Emma Garcia

A Cuban resident in the United States disclosed on her TikTok account her weekly earnings from cleaning houses. The individual, identified as Yenny González, shared three videos demonstrating her work, for which she earns between $700 and $800 weekly, though this can vary.

González explained that she is not employed by a company but works directly for a woman who has owned her exclusive houses for over 20 years and has gradually expanded her business due to her reputation. "In my mind, I thought: 'Well, cleaning houses, that's something all women do.' To my surprise, it's not as easy as it seems. It has its tricks," she commented in her first video.

“I've been working for her for a year now, and I've gotten to know all the houses and the clients recognize me too,” González added. She admitted that initially, the job was quite exhausting, but her body has since adapted.

In her second video, González highlighted that her clients are very appreciative and considerate, and during Christmas, they gave her gifts totaling $1,500. "Most clients really appreciate your work. Especially if you work directly with the American community, those will be your best clients, their merit cannot be denied," she affirmed.

"They are polite, grateful people who do not hinder your work at all. If they need to leave the house, they leave," she emphasized.

In the third video, Yenny showcased her work in a two-story house occupied by two adults, two children, and three dogs. It takes her five hours to clean, and she earns $120 for it.

Many Cuban emigrants often share on social networks their experiences in the U.S. labor market, including their earnings. In September, another young woman named Mayle revealed her annual income as a nurse in a hospital in Orlando, which ranges between $30,000 and $40,000, although some earn more. "It depends on the hospital you work at, the bonus they give you, and your experience. There are many variations," she pointed out. Mayle was accompanied by a colleague who added that nurses employed in other institutions like nursing homes or plasma banks earn more but lose their professional skills.
