What IS a Working Mom Really Bringing Home?

Below is just an example, but from the feedback I’ve received, it proves to be quite accurate. 

The figures may be conservative - you may make more, but chances are the expenses are more as well.


Monthly Income: $10/hr X 40 hrs/wk = $1,733/month

If you figure in preparation/travel time...a person working 40 hrs/wk probably uses another 2 hrs/day getting ready and traveling to/from, which makes it 50 hrs/wk.

Child Care: 1 child in full-time daycare at $100/week x 4 wks = $400/month (NOTE: some are in full-time daycare and after-school care) 

Taxes: the average person pays a minimum of 20% of their income in taxes (20% of $1600 = $320/month
Gas: this can really vary but today we know it’s a very real expense … let's say 1 tank of gas per week @ $40 = $160/month 

Clothing: professional clothing, uniforms, dry cleaning... $100/month 

Food Costs: eating lunch out, cafeteria, coffee or snack machines – we’ll budget a rather modest $5/day x 5 days/wk = $100/month 

MISC Expenses: housekeeper? summer camps? ...won't put numbers here, but definitely potential for add'l costs.

SUMMARY - $1,733 monthly income less $1,080 expenses = $653 bring-home pay = $4.08/hr (even less when travel/prep time are factored in).

Is $4/hour worth the stress & being away from home 40-50 hours a week?
