There is simply no way we can ever really thank mother for all she has done for us. She is the one who will be awake all night when we are sick. Praying to God to make us well and be ever ready to bear the pain that we may be experiencing. She is the one to wake up early in the morning to make the nicest snack and endure all our tantrums. Mothers are the ones who would forever complain that we are not eating enough or not eating right. They would cook all sorts of things so that we’ll be strong and healthy. In fact, mothers worry more for our examinations than we do. They would take pains to complete our school projects leaving all other works behind while we play around with friends or just away watching movies.
For all you are doing for us, thank you mom from the bottom of our hearts.
While we honor all our mothers
with words of love and praise.
While we tell about their goodness
and their kind and loving ways.
We should also think of Grandma,
she’s a mother too, you see…
For she mothered my dear mother
as my mother mothers me.
Live-in caregivers are covered by the Employment Standards Act and Regulation. These provisions include overtime pay, statutory holidays and holiday pay, annual vacations and vacation pay, and minimum wage.
As of May 1, 2011, minimum wage increased to $8.75 per hour. There are two scheduled increases as follows:
A live-in caregiver is a person who:
Before the job starts there must be a written employment agreement between the live-in caregiver and the employer.
The agreement must set out the caregiver’s duties, hours of work, wages and charges for room and board. The employer must give the live-in caregiver a copy of this agreement.
If a live-in nanny / caregiver works more hours than are set out in the employment agreement, the caregiver must be paid extra for these hours. If working more hours means the domestic works more than eight hours a day or 40 hours a week, the extra pay must be paid at overtime rates.
Maximum charges for room and board are set by the Regulation. These charges must not be more than $325 per month.
