Being a stay-at-home mom is a job difficult to put a salary on. In fact, moms accomplish many jobs each day to take care of their children and those jobs require certain skills that are, more often than not, undervalued.
As a matter of fact, according to a study by Insure.com, mothers don’t even put as high a price on their household work as the study by Salary.com, which calculated how much moms should earn for a year.
Insure.com exposed that 11% of women valued moms’ housework at under $10,000 for a year and only 7% of these women said it was worth a six-figure salary.
If you multiply each job’s salary by the hours accordingly, plus overtime, you will find out that moms should really earn $113,568.00 for 2013.
And if you take all the jobs moms do and add the hours spent for each job, stay-at-home moms are working on average 94 hours each week to take care of their family.
That’s why Salary.com has created this infographic to show you the details of all the different jobs the stay-at-home mom do and what she should receive for her tender loving care.
So check it out and you probably will be surprised by the numbers and different jobs a mother does each and every day to take care of her family. You can also compare the salaries from 2008 through this year.
