So how do we determine the amount moms are paid? In a nutshell, we rely on your input and our salary data.
Our Mom Salary Wizard is open to mothers all year long, and we ask our users to tell us how much time they spend each week doing various "mom jobs." From there, we take your final tallies, have our compensation experts mesh the number of hours with our salary data for the various jobs, and voila -- you're able to see mom's paycheck. We break it down by stay-at-home and working mothers, and present the top 10 jobs on which moms say they spend the most time.
Since most families are on the smaller side,we only used salary data for companies with 25 full-time employees or less. But the links we're providing throughout the article consist of salaries for ALL companies sizes, hence you might see some varying numbers.
This year we had more than 15,000 moms take our survey, and we’ll be including quotes celebrating motherhood throughout.
This year’s results show the same 10 jobs made the list as last year, with small but steady gains in terms of the actual mom salary as well as hours worked per week. Want to know which jobs moms do the most and what the final tally was? Read on.
