According to Salary.com, stay-at-home moms work 94.7 hours a week. Unreal! The pay for that would be $112,962 or just over $17 an hour. Too bad they’re not bringing home any money, although, most will admit their job is priceless.
Working moms make less than six figures but still work a ton. If they actually got paid, combined with their real salary they’d make big bucks. Their salary is an estimated $66,979 with a workweek of 57.9 hours. That’s on top of their 40 hour week for work that actually pays.
