THE WAYOOK EXPERIENCE
Founded in 2014 by Álvaro Sánchez and Rodrigo Olmo, Wayook is an online platform connecting professionals and consumers, who can book cleaning services for their homes starting at €8.90 an hour.
According to a report from the International Labour Organization, Spain is in the EU top-3 in number of domestic workers, with as many as 750,000 in 2010. That number has probably gone down with the financial crisis, but what has remained stable is the percentage of the sector that is still part of the black market: about 50%, according to various organisations. Wayook claims that it only employs cleaners that are autónomos (legally self-employed).
