A housewife is a most hardworking person. Since a woman provides a shape to the emotional and educational well being of the children. A woman playing a role of house wife should be paid as she’s the strongest foundation of the house who supports her husband and children. Without the work of a homekeeper, other family members would not be free to go to work and invest in a career for themselves.
