Facts of Life

BY The Editors

May 20-June 2, 2012 Issue | Posted 5/10/12 at 5:14 PM came out with its annual “What’s a Mom Worth?” annual survey in early May. Averaging the salaries for 10 “mom jobs” — CEO, laundry-machine operator, psychologist, janitor, van driver, computer operator, facilities manager, daycare-center teacher, cook, housekeeper — the grand total for stay-at-home moms’ work was $112,962. “But we all know the value of raising one or more people into quality human beings cannot ever be truly calculated,” noted.

The website’s calculation for working moms was $66,979 for their mom duties.

As the article stated, “Whether they stay at home or work, all moms deserve our respect, love and perpetual gratitude.”

Thanks, Mom!
