The Price of a Mom: $138,095

Standard

From here

According to one new report, $138,095 a year.

That’s the figure in a report by Salary.com, which calculates the wages that would have been paid a stay-at-home mom in 2007 if she were compensated for all the elements of her “job.” That total is up 3% from 2006’s salary of $134,121.

Moms who have jobs outside the house would earn another $85,939 for their mothering work, beyond what they bring home in existing salary.

The job descriptions that Salary.com used to determine a mom’s salary includes 10 jobs that moms do on an average day: housekeeper, day care center teacher, cook, computer operator, laundry machine operator, janitor, facilities manager, van driver, CEO and psychologist.

Plenty of overtime
In calculating a mom’s wages, Salary.com looked at the “overtime” that both working and stay-at-home moms put in each week.

“Mom works multiple jobs and rarely gets a break from the action, working an average of 52 hours of overtime,” said Bill Coleman, senior vice president at Salary.com, in a statement.
According to the Salary.com survey, stay-at-home moms work a 92-hour week, with more than half the workweek spent in overtime.

Working moms, meanwhile, logged more than nine hours of “overtime,” with an average 49-hour “mom” work week — on top of their full-time paying jobs.

For the Salary.com survey, more than 40,000 moms quantified their hours per job description; Salary.com benchmarked the median salaries for each job to the national median salary for each position as reported by employers.

The final salary was calculated by weighting the salaries and hours worked in each role.

I AM SO ASKING MY BOSS FOR A RAISE!!!!

Ps 62:12 – And lovingkindness is Yours, O Lord, For You recompense a man according to his work. Ps 104:23 – Man goes forth to his work And to his labor until evening. 2Ti 2:21 – Therefore, if anyone cleanses himself from these {things,} he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified, useful to the Master, prepared for every good work. 2Ti 3:17 – so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work. 2Ti 4:5 – But you, be sober in all things, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.

  1. OK, where do I apply for this job. God’s greatest gift to a Mom is to raise her family and have time to study scripture, blog and eat bon bons. Although she will probably never fess up. Super “K”, my lil Heffa, my home engineer is spoiled. Alas, she spoils us too!!! She is worth a million bucks. Fortunately for my pocket book, her rewards are in heaven. Love you baby….your the best. PS…as I type this she is still out shopping with our son spending $$$$.
