Stay-at-home Moms Are Priceless

Reuters has this report yesterday – Stay-at-home mother’s work worth $138,095 a year. Given today’s current salary levels, mommies are earning even more than top-level corporate honchos. Now would you look at that. A six-figure salary!

According to Salary.com moms are the real pros, working at least 10 jobs that include:

housekeeper, cook, day care center teacher, laundry machine operator, van driver, facilities manager, janitor, computer operator, chief executive officer and psychologist.

And what do they get out of it? Nada. Gratis et amor. Given the fact that mommies do this all for the satisfaction of having a happy family, moms fall into the proverbial Mastercard commercial calls “priceless.”

So as Mother’s Day looms, better thank and appreciate your mom (especially if she’s been a stay-at-home mom) for everything. Get her a gift. It’s the least you can do.

    While I agree all those jobs are worth that amount, the sad reality is that if stay at home moms were paid that amount, 99% would be fired after a week. This is nothing more than a PR stunt by Salary.com to bring attention and free press to themselves and find one more way to exploit women in the media.

    Think about it, if someone came over and saw the average home with a stay at home mom in their “day care” mode, how many would leave their children there to be cared for during the day. Not many. How many stay at home moms would still be on the job a week later for the job they did keeping the house clean? Not many.

    I’ll bet the folks at Salary.com counted talking on the phone to their girlfriends, their mother, etc. and watching Opera as paid time as well.

    It has been estimated that the average office worker in the U.S. wastes 2.5 hours of an 8 hour work day doing nothing … I think if the same was observed in stay at home moms, the number would escalate. I am not taking away anything from stay at home moms, their roles are vital in the household. But, comeon, let’s get serious, $138k? That is nearly four times what the average full time employee makes.

    Shall we add the stuff that men do around the house to? Hey, it doesn’t matter that they aren’t any good at it, Salary.com doesn’t seem to care. So, we could add gardener/landscaper ($42,000), garbage collector ($28,500), handyman ($52,000), and my personal favorite, Sports Color Commentator, for all those insightful comments he makes during the game ($182,000). Yeah, that is about right.

    Get real.

    What a sad outlook! My home is my business… a fun, clean, entertaining, safe place to be! I work 24 hours a day and never take a vacation. Can you say the same?
