I've heard it posited that if you are paying someone to do your domestic work, you should pay them the rate you get to do your non-domestic work. That basically, they are your equal and you should show it with your money. Otherwise, you are creating a hierarchy where your work is more valuable than the domestic work you are paying someone else to do.

That's a great sort of 'guideline' or way to think about it, especially the creating equality and preventing a hierarchy part - thanks for that! I think I felt similar about the subject, but wasn't able to put it in such concise words. That's what I like about your comment - it is very simple and understandable and at the same time powerful in its way to get the point across.
