  • Depends on the experience of the person you are hiring.
    If she is a professional and/or has much experience then anywhere from $10-$16 an hour.
    If she is a teen or a college student just pocking up some extra work for the summer,$8-$10

  • It depends on what exactly her responsibilities will be, her age, experience, and number of hours/week.
