20% of Money Paid for Fashion, They Have Little, but Fashion is High Priority


There is a fallacy that people living in poor countries have no money. That they are living hand-to-hand. In reality this girl spends 20% of her money for fashion to do her hair. I am paying her $12 a day, and it cost $24 to do her hair that way. She is about 20 years old and has a one-year-old child named Raul. She is cleaning my room for 2 Hours, and I paid $12. In reality $12 is about 1 complete days pay, so she is getting a lot of money per hour for a girl that cannot read.
