What can I do? Hello!! I have been working as a nanny for a family in California, they are good and the kids are great, I really love the kids and look forward to see them every day! To make a long story short, they had a nanny for over a year, she had to go away for some time and I got the job with an agency, I signed a contract but now I think that I am not making enough money compared to the other nanny, the five year old always tells me that the other nanny never did anything, she sat around all day watching TV! she never took them to the park and gave them corn dogs for lunch every day! I always try to keep them entertained with activities, I cook good food for them every day, we don't watch TV unless is a movie i feel and i know that i do more work than her, because even she told me that she did nothing all day and was paid a lot of money! She told me she never did any art with the kids, or clean after them, I feel really bad because I know I am a good nanny and I think its unfair that she got paid way more money that me! I ask other nannies what should i do?
