Household Workers

The nature of the tasks performed by household workers can best be described by function. The general houseworker or dayworker is hired by the hour and fulfills numerous duties ranging from cleaning and making beds to buying, cooking, and serving food. The personal attendant performs personal services for the employer, such as mending, washing, and pressing garments; helping the employer dress; and keeping private quarters clean and tidy. Caretakers and yard workers do heavy housework and general home maintenance. They wash windows, wax floors, maintain heating and cooling systems, do odd jobs, and occasionally mow lawns or work in the garden.
