I stumbled on a little factoid when reading Real Simple that I thought our readers might find interesting.
Did you know that the yearly salary of a 2012 stay-at-home mom would be $112,962 (that is, if she were paid), as determined by the career-advice website Salary.com. Real Simple states:
“The income was calculated by combining the average wages, plus overtime, for the jobs a mom typically performs, including laundress, janitor, driver, cook, facilities manager, psychologist, and CEO (of the household). The results also showed that the average stay-at-home mom works a grueling 94.7-hour week and would make an average $22.94 an hour.”
Now if only I could see that paycheck!
