Salary of stay at home mom?

OK. Who writes this crap?

WALTHAM, Mass., April 13, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Salary.com Releases Average "Mom Salary" for both Working and Stay-at-Home Moms

With Mother's Day less than a month away, moms are top of mind. This week, Salary.com released its yearly average for what stay-at-home and working mothers would make if they were paid an annual salary for their work.

"The data really speaks for itself - a mother's work is valuable and tangible," said Abby Euler, general manager at Salary.com. "We want to make sure that moms get the recognition and appreciation they deserve."

For the 12th consecutive year, Salary.com's Mom Salary Wizard has helped put a real dollar amount on all that moms do, both in and out of the home. The company collects data from actual mothers - both stay-at-home and working - to provide how many hours go into their mothering duties at home.

This year more than 8,000 moms quantified their hours by job description in order to compute the yearly average. Based on this data, Salary.com determined that the average stay-at-home mom juggles a 94.7 hour work week and a working mom manages 57.9 hours of work at home per week, in addition to the time she spends at work.

Taking into account overtime and using salary data provided by employers, an average stay-at-home mom's 2012 total salary would be $112,962. A working mom's at-home 2012 salary would be $66,979. A working mom's at-home salary should be combined with her actual work salary in order to determine her yearly compensation.

Sure. Then again, not every mother has the smarts of Indra Nooyi, caring nature of Mother Teresa, and a body like Sophia Vergara's.

Plus, this is an all expense paid position, including food, vacations, health care and shopping.

Edit: Personally, I dont think anyone can put a price on motherhood.

It's these bimbo feminists who write such articles with down right figures that annoy me.

Great to see they didn't bother with comparisons.

Average MBA salary is less than that.
Average BA salary is less than that.
Average Project Manager salary is less than that.
Average Software Developer salary is less than that.

No FORMAL education required, and no consistent skill set or performance metrics.

Average HOUSEHOLD income in US is $49,445

TOTAL BS that the job is listed as that high.


Important, YES. That high? what a joke.

I read the numbers a little different. It is saying that a person who was a stay at home mom has to work an average of 112 hours a week and when you factor overtime, etc they make that ludicrous salary (which by CLSB terms is still poverty level if you believe people on this website)

However, when you look at the portion of the working moms work an additional XX number of hours for a total cost of $66,979. That is like saying that when you go home at the end of the day and have to cut the grass, mend the fence, clean, cook dinner, etc all has value. They have just monitized the value of a working mother at home.

The way I read the numbers is that the difference in salary between a working mother and a stay at home Mother is $66,866. This means that the value of raising your kids by the mother is around $66,866. In other words, if you are financially capable of affording it, the parent that makes less than $66,866 should stay home. In today's society however, very few families are fortunate enough to have one parent make enough for the entire family.

Holly Cow...so well thought out for a Monday morning.

I, like others just saw the flaw with the article and calculations, got annoyed and moved on. Not you, very impressive and thank you.

Thata why you suppliment your income with credit cards and then bail!

Its true its not feasible right now for her to work as day care would suck up90% of her income at say $15hr of wages, when my youngest hits 1st grade and is in school all day then it will owrk out better as less daycare costs, why woul i want someone else to raise our boys for a measly extra $50 - 100 cash per week after shes done payin taxes, daycare, fuel, clothing. Theres a areason theres so many fucked up kids - other people raiseing them cause people want the $300k homes, big ass cars but sacrifice their kids well being and dumop them in day care when their 5 months old - i dont get that one chicaks that have a kid - take their leave for 3-4 months and go back to work and dump their kids off at daycare for 10 hrs a day - what kinda mother child bond can be established? fuggin bs if you ask me.

Most kids are in daycare now, or worse because there is only one parent. The "normal" family structure from when I was a kid is now a rarity.

Yup, because of dudes like this who are proud of not taking any parental responsibilities:

the way i look at it is.

RIDE your own ride.

i suggest to anyone going to a group ride find out what kind of riding will take place and how things will get runed or organized.

simple as that. if something doesnt go comfortable with yourself let the group know your going to leave.
etc....

this way EACH rider can tell if they wanna go on this group ride or not.

there differant types.

slow cruise
mild pace
DEAMON run
or stunt feast.

make your own choice. and enjoy yourself
Sorry dude, I didnt know that by free you actually meant 50% off.

Kinda like when Lincoln freed the slaves and told em to come back in the summer.

By free meaning I collect no monetary payment. What does having kids have to do with Lincoln and slavery? Do you have kids?

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

Of course, that would count as baby-sitting, bed testing, and house-sitting.

Heck, you could be getting paid for all three at once!

TRIPLE billings PLUS the OT!!!

I'd do it for nothing and let my wife work all day. The real answer is that job is worth nothing, because there are people willing to do it for free.

I'm not sure why we can't get a calculation of value for all the sexing we lay down on these mommies to help relax them. I know my sweet loving has a serious worth, I should be getting $$ for all the pipe I lay or at least recognition for a delivered value.
