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.

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?
