Stay-at-home moms should make $162,000 salary, survey finds

Being a mother is one of the hardest jobs in the world, and there is no way to compensate moms for their matchless care and long hours.

But if stay-at-home moms got paid, how much should they make?

To try and answer that question, Salary.com selected a handful of jobs that reflect the work moms do every day.

Salary.com also determined that stay-at-home moms actually work more than 90 hours a week.

With that information entered into the website's salary calculator, it determined the medium annual salary of a mother in 2018 should be $162,581.00.

That's a nearly 5 percent increase from the 2017 estimated salary.
