For all you moms who are convinced you work harder and longer than most other people, it’s finally been confirmed.
You actually do.
A survey sponsored by Welch’s noted that mothers work an average of 14 hours a day for a 98-hour work week. The survey included 2,000 moms with children in elementary school.
Remember, that’s without monetary compensation. Of course, moms know they get paid with something better than money: love, appreciation, hugs, kisses, and most important of all, the knowledge that they’re shaping the next generation.
Still, the equivalent of 2.5 full-time jobs? Yikes!
This just proves what most moms have known all along: they are priceless!
However, just for the fun of it, use this link to calculate your (or your mother’s) salary. Then thank her and wish her a happy Mother’s Day!
