Domestic Engineering and Property Management



HOW MUCH IS A HOUSEWIFE WORTH ?

If you're a stay-at-home wife and mother, you're worth a whopping $125,900 a
year! That's because your mate would have to pay $2,325 a week to hire people to
perform all the jobs you do, according to U.S. government statistics.

A busy mom provides her family with the services of a child care worker, cook,
dishwasher, chauffeur, laundry worker, maid and more.

Here's what it would cost to hire someone to do these jobs for a week, according to
the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics 1995 Employment and Earnings report:

1. CHILD CARE WORKER - $182
That's the amount working parents fork out for a fulltime child care worker to look
after and feed their children.

2. COOK - $238
Professional cooks earn an average of $238 a week. But you could be worth even
more if you whip up dishes that could be served at fine restaurants.

3. DISHWASHER AND KITCHEN CLEANER - $225
That's what an expert makes working full-time in the catering and food preparation
business.

4. LAUNDRY WORKER - $199
You're worth $199 a week to wash, dry and fold your family's clothes and linens.

5. CHAUFFEUR - $362
Professional drivers pocket $362 a week. But you may be worth more since you're at
your family's beck and call 24 hours a day.

6. MAID - $182
Although this is what the average maid earns, it's not a lot to do all the dirty work
around the house.

7. RECREATION COORDINATOR - $303
You should be paid $303 a week to plan and execute your children's playtime
schedule.

8. TUTOR - $228
You tear your hair out helping your children master the "new math" for free; while a
professional tutor rakes in $228 a week.

9. BOOKKEEPER/SECRETARY - $389
A clerical worker who balances the books, answers the phone and organizes
schedules earns $389 a week.

Tally all those figures and you'll find you could be earning a cool $120,900 a year
($155,280 if you factor in a 3% inflation rate)."

This does not even factor in the spiritual training and mentoring that a mother will do
that a hired hand would not. So how much is the love of a stay-at-home mother/wife
worth to a family?   PRICELESS !!!

Hi, Steven here. I didn't write that, that's from a PDF I found online, here. Props to whomever DID write it.

Bear in mind as well that's in 1995 dollars.

Current official income of housewife: $ 0 per year. Same as it ever was.
