Another Kid, Another Raise?

opinion 1
I need advice. Have been working with a family since their now 2.5 year old was 2 months old. I had been gradually getting raises... starting at $175 and am now up to $230/week. They just had a new baby and I will be working part time until mom goes back to work. How much of an increase should I expect for watching both kids when she goes back to work? They are an amazing family to work for. Very flexible when I have things come up and what not. I will probably only be with them through the end of the summer as I am graduating from college, although they are trying to convince me to stay longer. Any advice is appreciated.

Normally I would advise you to get a raise and seek fair pay for what I assume is full time work.

But since you plan on leaving I wouldn't make a big deal of it.

Have you been working full-time for this family? I know you said you will be working part-time while Mom is on maternity leave, but for 2 kids least $400/week.

If you work FT, you're seriously underpaid, since minimum wage and OT apply to every single person who works as a household employee.

That said, a raise of about 20% is the norm for a new baby raise. so, ask for $50 a week, and see where the employers go from there.

If you are making hourly, I would add on an extra $3/Hr.
