Maybe it’s an increased commitment to battle the gender wage gap, the rise of female breadwinners, or women heeding the call to “Lean In.” But whatever the reason, Salary.com’s annual “Mom Salary” survey was more popular than ever and created some great insights in 2014.
But before we begin, we need to stress something. This is not an exact science, nor is it meant to be. We understand no one survey could ever truly encapsulate what a parent does, and many mothers disagree that what they do is a job. We don’t do this to demean or devalue mothers – quite the opposite, actually. Everyone can relate to a paycheck, so that’s how we choose to point out the massive contributions mothers make. And also because we're SALARY.com. We hope you take it in the positive way it’s intended.
And don’t worry dads, we’ll have your Dad Salary come June.
