Salary.com released their 2007 Mom Salary survey last week.

Based on its survey of more than 40,000 mothers, Salary.com determined that the time mothers spend performing 10 typical job functions would equate to an annual salary of $138,095 for a stay-at-home mom … Working Mom’s ‘at-home’ salary is $85,939 … this is in addition to the salary they earn in the workplace …

A large portion of mom’s salary is from the amount of overtime worked … stay-at-home moms work a 92 hour “workweek” – more than half her time spent on the job is overtime. Working moms … logged over 9 hours of overtime for an average 49 hour mom work week beyond their full time paying jobs …

The job titles that best matched a mom’s definition of her work are (in order of hours spent per week): housekeeper, day care center teacher, cook, computer operator, laundry machine operator, janitor, facilities manager, van driver, CEO and psychologist.

It’s Mother’s Day this weekend, so let’s hear it for all you moms and the hard work you put in for your families week in and week out. We appreciate you and all that you do.
