I can't figure out how this is. I went to talk to someone who used to place nannies (and now places temporary office workers) and she said, the people nannying are usually on welfare and food stamps. They get medicaid for themselves and their children. They might even be on section 8. So $125 a week is just party money because all of their needs are met.
Are you kidding me? I have to support my husband and I and pay rent on a $900 apartment, plus utilities.food, car insurance on two cars and one car payment. Why doesn't the government go after these people? They are making it hard for real nannies to get work. They are exposing their children to questionable caregivers and they are bankrupting the United States. I got a job at a department store. I'm great with kids but I'm working in the menswear section of a department store. Don't worry my employer and I pay our taxes.
Has anyone else heard of these crap pseudo sitters wrecking the nanny market?
