Unsure of What to Charge in Nanny Share
This is my first submission and hope I am doing this correctly. I am a full time nanny for three kids in the South. A 2 year old, a four year old and a seven year old. After working for this family for over a year, I am still only making $250.00 (the rate stayed the same even during the Summer when I had all three). I asked for a raise earlier this year outlining the reasons why I think I should make a little more money and was told that they could only do it for another $10.00.
During the school year I have the 2 year old full time with the 4 year old going to pre-k three days a week from 9am-1pm. The seven year old will be coming home at 2:30pm. I work from 8:30am-5:30pm but I usually end up staying later with no overtime. The family is extremely nice and live in the country club and take weeklong vacations several times a year. The kids are pretty good though the four year old and 2 year old can be quite difficult. I am growing resentful that I work 40 plus hours a week for $250.00 which is around 6.00 an hour for three kids. I am wondering if anyone has any advice on how I can broach this subject again as I feel I am being grossly underpaid for the amount of work and kids that I deal with. - Anonymous
