My friend's status post....salary.com released the current rate of what stay at home moms are really worth - $118,000.00. Take that all you men that try to push moms back into the work force - we are worth more than you!
Yep, yep yep!
Can we save this post and bring it out every time the SAHM Salary comes up?
BTW, thanks for posting the link.
Yep - and who knew that salary.com could accurately declare how much doing our own laundry and cleaning our own floors in our own homes is worth! Plus, I didn't know that someone can be paid as a psychologist without a degree in that, and never mind that it's unethical for psychologists to practice on their own family members, moms are worth it so add it right onto the paycheck!
"Assigning a pay figure to mom tasks is ridiculous."
No, it's not. Here's how you do it. If you're a WOHM, you're worth your salary, plus the $118K figure cited in the OP because you're both working and raising your kids. So if you make $72K , for example, you're worth $190K. But if you're a SAHM, you're worth $118K because you don't collect a salary to add to this figure.
