92 hours shifts...

If the typical stay-at-home mother in the United States were paid for her work as a housekeeper, cook and psychologist among other roles, she would earn $138,095 a year, according to research released on Wednesday.

This reflected a 3 percent raise from last year's $134,121, according to Salary.com Inc, Waltham, Massachusetts-based compensation experts.

The 10 jobs listed as comprising a mother's work were housekeeper, cook, day care center teacher, laundry machine operator, van driver, facilities manager, janitor, computer operator, chief executive officer and psychologist, it said.

The typical mother puts in a 92-hour work week, it said, working 40 hours at base pay and 52 hours overtime.

A mother who holds full-time job outside the home would earn an additional $85,939 for the work she does at home, Salary.com.

Last year she would have earned $85,876 for her at-home work, it said.

Salary.com compiled the online responses of 26,000 stay-at-home mothers and 14,000 mothers who also work outside the home.

On my own thoughts now:

If a stay at home mom will be given a salary bracket I would say that she would fall on C.E.O and Top Surgeons list and why? She is 24 hours on call on anything and that anything includes from cooking to being your laundry lady and chauffeur.

There is no salary enough to be a Mom. May you be a single parent, student mom, working mom, stay at home or part time.

A Mom is a mom and there is no money equivalent for being a MOM.
