What Should Be The Salary For A Fulltime Mom In South Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa
Earlier this month we celebrated Mother's Day. We were showering her with flowers, cards, all-you-can-eat brunches, hugs, and kisses. And, an extra portion of love.
Regardless if she's having a bad hair day, along with her maternal title she wears many hats. I would guess most of us can't even begin to list everything she does.
If we were to anti-up and put Mom on the family payroll, do you think her salary would be commensurate?
Breaking it down by annual salary, monthly, weekly, and hourly wage South Dakota moms made the top-5 in the U.S.
With all due respect for Mom, these numbers are embarrassing, to say the least. I think you'll agree that her 24/7/365 job could, and should come up for review with a sizable increase in pay.
