The "Salary" of a Stay at Home Mom - $117,867.00
Don't we all say, "I wish I could get paid to do this."
Or we SHOULD get paid to do this.
Rearing a child is one of the most difficult occupations in the world, yet one of the least recognized and respected.
"Oh...you're just a stay at home mom" Like there is no credibility.
Hello! I'm raising a human being! What could be more difficult, yet more rewarding?
Well, I was watching the news this morning and Salary.com came out with a measure in which they can calculate what we should be getting paid!
Based on a survey of more than 28,000 moms, Salary.com determined that the time mothers spend performing 10 typical job functions would equate to an annual salary of $117,867.00 - boasting an approximate work week of 91 hours!
The job titles that best matched a mom's definition of work are (in order of hours spent per week):
* Day Care Center Teacher
* Computer Operator
* Facilities Manager
* Laundry Machine Operator
It makes you wonder....
What I could do with all that money!
