Moms Deserve to Make $134,121/Per Year

I know several "stay-at-home moms" who deserve at least $134,121 a year:
A mother who works outside the home would earn an extra $85,876 annually on top of her actual wages for the work she does at home, according to the study by Waltham, Massachusetts-based compensation experts Salary.com.

To reach the projected pay figures, the survey calculated the earning power of the 10 jobs respondents said most closely comprise a mother's role -- housekeeper, day-care teacher, cook, computer operator, laundry machine operator, janitor, facilities manager, van driver, chief executive and psychologist.

"You can't put a dollar value on it. It's worth a lot more," said Kristen Krauss, 35, as she hurriedly packed her four children, all aged under 8, into a minivan in New York while searching frantically for her keys. "Just look at me."

Employed mothers reported spending on average 44 hours a week at their outside job and 49.8 hours at their home job, while the stay-at-home mother worked 91.6 hours a week, it showed.
It seems as though this topic is gaining some steam with the release of a number of news books about what mothers deserve, what they are getting and how the government is failing them.

I agree 100%. The same goes for stay at home dads. Few and far between, but they do exist.

This is fairly absurd. You shouldn't get paid or compensated for having a child. This is a personal choice one makes and they shoulder their own burden as a result of this.
