At first, this article made me laugh. But as I continued to read, I realized how very serious they were. Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t laugh because I think mothers aren’t worth that. The article indicates that if a mother were to get paid for the many roles she plays at home, she would earn approximately $134,121 annually. That’s for a stay-at-home mom. For mothers that have full-time jobs and then come home to do all the motherly things, they should get an additional $85,876 on top of their actual salary.
I totally agree with thier assesment, but I didn’t think anyone would actually put numbers on it. Most people know that mothers work harder than many full-time employees.
But any mother is going to tell you that they do it for the love of their kids. And that’s a good thing. If we started paying mothers, what kind of world would this become? It’s not one of those responsilities that requires money. It’s the blessings of raising children properly and then seeing them grow and eventually contribute to society.
My wife is completly happy with her $700/month budget 😉
