Oh, If Only!
Parade Magazine always does a yearly special on 'What People Earn.' Stay-at-home Moms don't get paid, but here's a rough estimate of what my salary might be IF only someone would pay it for me.
|Job Title||Hourly Rate||Hours Worked|
|Day Care Center Teacher||$12.18||1,082|
|Cook - Institution||$12.45||530|
|Computer Operator I||$14.88||426|
|Laundry Machine Operator||$8.82||504|
|Chief Executive Officer||$163.43||213|
|Regular Hourly Rate||$21.81||2,080||$45,375|
Depending on the day, I might do more housework, or less cooking... but I still don't think it's accurate because being a Mom is a 24-hour a day job, and this doesn't quite account for it. And c'mon, what about my pay as a doctor? Or at the very least, Nurse??? Not to mention, but don't you think a Psychologist gets paid more than $34.86 an hour? However, no one is here to cut me a check, so maybe it doesn't matter so much.
How much do you earn as a Stay-At-Home Mom?
