Market watch just released a statement saying that the average stay at home mom would (if paid for her labors) receive a salary of $117856 per year and that working moms would earn an additional $71860. How do we as a culture value or undervalue the work that mom’s do? These numbers certainly imply that moms perform a lot of work without much thanks, which I think we already know.
Also, why was there no statement on how much dads would make? What are the cultural implications of this missing detail?
