As I was driving my children to school this morning, I passed a school bus, and I got an idea for a blog post that I wanted to share, here. In many households in the country, the housewife (of which I am one) gets overlooked or has their tasks EXPECTED and UNAPPRECIATED by those of the household. Here is a picture of what value is being missed....
Daily WAGE (unpaid) of a HOUSEWIFE by hourly fraction of comparable average wages...
BUS DRIVER (driving kids to school 15 min): $3.5
COOK/CHEF (meals 1.5 hours): $15
Grocery Shopper (1 hour): $16 (ave between contractor ave of 12 and employee of 20)
Maid (house cleaning/laundry of 1 hours): $11
So, JUST with those 4 items, the DAILY unpaid wage of a housewife is $45.5 per day - $16,607 per year (they don't get days off).
So, the next time someone complains about the measley EIC tax refund a wife gets, go fk yourself.
