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.
