What A Stay-At-Home Mom Should Earn As A Salary In 2014 (INFOGRAPHIC)

Stay-at-home moms do each day a multitude of tasks that we often take for granted and all of this without pay. That’s why Salary.com has carried out its annual survey which 15 000 mothers have participated to.

They narrowed it down to the top 10 most time-consuming jobs moms have to do daily and found out that our mothers juggle an average of 96.5 hours of work every week. Compared to last year, it seems that moms are working 2.5 hours more weekly in 2014.

To get these results, they applied what they call their “extensive salary data” to each job, multiplied it by the appropriated hours, added overtime and came up with the whopping total salary of $118 905 yearly. Of all the tasks that moms accomplish each day, this is housekeeping that takes up most of their time with 14.6 hrs each week, but this is CEO that is paid the most at $53.81 an hour.

So you see, moms do work around the house that is worth the equivalent of a high-level executive salary. So it is safe to say that moms would do anything for their family since they do all this work for free. Furthermore, moms don’t count their time when it comes to assuring the happiness and well-being of their family. A mom’s love is selfless.

To see the task breakdown for 2014, just check out the infographic below and tell me what you think. You will even find in it a historic of the stay-at-home mom salaries from 2009 to 2013 with the estimated salary and hours per week. Naturally, us moms can’t expect to receive this salary anytime soon, but finding out how our work is worth puts what we do for our family in perspective, doesn’t it?

  1. We should add to that Sleep Study Specialist for all the times we are up in the night, making sure they are sleeping. LOL. I wish my bank account looked like that!! Sharing on pinterest.


    1. Thanks a lot for your comment, Elisabeth. I too remember the waking up at night for my children, especially when they were tiny babies. I could lay there awake listening to the baby monitor to make sure they were breathing.

      Thanks again for stopping by! 🙂


  2. Wow! This is truly eye opening. We all know that mom’s all work their butts off to keep their household happy and healthy and functioning properly. This is such a good way to understand how important their role is in the family. It’s just too bad that we have to see the worth monetarily in order to understand how important this role is. Thank you so much for sharing this! I will definitely be pinning and sharing this post. Stopping in from the IBA facebook thread. Have a wonderful weekend.


    1. Glad you liked it, Megan! The reason I wanted to post this infographic is exactly like you said to show how much work moms do each day. People often don’t realize it and I think it’s important to show it to them.

      Thanks for taking the time to read, pin and share my post. You too have a wonderful weekend 🙂


    1. Hi Tina and you are right, you were here recently for my “An In-Depth Look At Depression And How It Can Affect You” post through another Facebook #IBA thread. I am glad you came back and liked my infographic!

      Come back again and have a nice weekend! 🙂


  3. Interesting way of putting things into perspective. I know some might disagree with this and put the whole info-graphic down but I am of the belief that moms do work a lot to keep the house going. Some of them even run their own small business on the side as well. Stopping by from Facebook’s group!


    1. Welcome to my site Ana! The point of this infographic is exactly to put things in perspective about the work that moms accomplish to take care of their family. It’s important to pay tribute to them once in a while so they know they are appreciated.

      Thanks for stopping by and have a nice weekend! 🙂
