yes a bit of fairness towards a minder goes a long way.i left a job due to parents not paying half rate when they took a holiday.i did afterschool(45 euro a day) but they also wanted me to do full days during the holidays 9 to 6.30.they wanted me to do an extra 15/18 hours for 45 a day.when i mentioned that they hadent paid for the extra hours they looked at me like i was an alien that had just landed.treat a minder with a bit of decency and they will stay with you.
