Received Tuesday, November 6, 2007- Perspective & Opinion
I have been working for the same family for a year, and I want to ask for a raise, but I am having a hard time deciding how to go about it,and also trying to figure out what the appropriate amount would be to ask for. I would love some advice!I work 40-45 hrs a week, and get paid $20/hr. (Live and work in SF,CA) There are 3 school aged kids. I do all of the grocery shopping and cooking, run errands, help with the laundry, do some cleaning, pick up kids from school, run carpools, play dates, help with homework, bathe kids, make whole family dinner every night and much more!On top of that, I am always available to stay late/come early, I am never late, and never call in sick. Also, I travel with them.Does anyone have any idea how much would be appropriate to ask for??? Thanks!!!
