  1. Our domestic help at lakeside earn more than teachers and police so the slave wages is just not the case. The actually earn higher wages than 90% of Mexico. If I had to pay the US wage equivalent I simply wouldn't have any help. They won't thank you for causing the jobs to disappear. Actually I would just cut the hours back to what I could afford as would many folks I know. This area thrives because of the cost of living for foreigners. Most home owners simply use the inflation number as a percentage. A raise should be for better work not just attendance. Most workers do not get a COLA in the US.

  3. If your bank mailed a new card to you, you can forget about ever seeing it. What works is having them send it down by FedEx or DHL and send to IShop rather than to your home. If there are two of you on the acct. I would suggest getting two cards just for times like this.

  5. I've been with Parker for almost 20 years and they're wonderful to work with. I've had my car stolen, was involved in a serious accident, etc. and each time they responded quickly and made it easy.

  6. Totally agree. We pay 70 per hour for maid and gardener. A raise for coming to work? Not at my house. We do alot over and above for our staff.....nobody ever gave me all kinds of perks just for doing my job. I feel we pay very fairly.

  10. You give a raise for showing up?? How nice.. I pay the gardeners the going rate and right now they get by the hour the same as a mason so I m not anxious to give them a raise especially since I have to keep an eye on them and keep them in tract. If they were making 50 pesos an hour it would be different but at 70 they are getting overpaid in compataison to what does a mason.. So everyone is in a differnt boat..

  12. Yes, with Dr. Eloy Barrigan. Spent an hour and a half in the chair yesterday. CV precautions very much in place. He did his usual great work, virtually pain free. Check with them about the extraction.

  13. What most people here give is what they want to give, or not give. As you can see from the comments that ranges from zero to whatever. So, whatever rings your bell.

  14. I notice International Living mag is starting to push Mexico again Yes, Covid has affected the market some, but the crap going on in the US (where I am at present, trying to tie up some loose ends) is enough to sour anyone's stomach and make them consider jumping ship. Prices in the US are high high high. I go to the grocery store and see sweet red peppers for $3.99 each. A whole pineapple for $2.99. A much-reduced-from-2015-size Panera soup and sandwich you pick 2 runs about $11-. My 80+ year old dad just got a script from his doc for Viagra----at $50 a pill! And my dad has Medicare plus great private insurance. Meanwhile a man friend told me he got name brand Viagra in Ajijic for $5 a pill! There also some new studies coming out showing that many of us here have had Covid and don't even know it. The Boston Homeless study revealed that 96% of the population in the Shelter tested + for Covid and were asymptomatic, or at worst, had colds and thought nothing of it. Ditto for the new study released for inmates in Arkansas, Virginia, and Alabama. There are a few studies now showing that 30 -60% of the population catches Covid, but the immune system is triggered to re-code the viral RNA sequence of Covid to deactivate or mutate the virus....making the virus a minimal infection, if any infection at all. Not only that, but many people who test + with Covid early on are later tested for antibodies, and there are none, because their immune systems wiped out any trace of Covid-19 RNA, as the immune system is supposed to do, by breaking it down to a regular coronavirus. An experiment with exposed Rhesus monkeys proved the same. I'm saying all this because I think the market is going to correct itself sooner rather than later, especially as we discover more optimistic facts about Covid and how limited the virus actually may be.
