How much is a mother's love worth? Apparently, about $117,000.
Salary.com surveyed more than 18,000 moms and deduced that a stay-at-home mom's work is worth $116,805 in 2008. And working moms? They deserve $68,405 for their time at home. That's in addition to what they're pulling down at the office. Um, our paychecks are overdue!
So, what makes our salary so high? According to the survey, a Mom is part housekeeper, daycare provider, cook, laundry machine operator, computer operator, psychologist, facilities manager, van driver, chief executive officer and janitor. That's one mother of a resume!
See, we haven't been sitting around all day watching As the World Turns.
