I am a live-out nanny from California for 2 children of the ages 2 and 4. These kids are a total handful and thats exactly why the parents hired me. I have to do lots of laundry every week, put away all of there stuff several times a day, clean the kitchen every day (because they can make a mess!) I have to Drop off and pick up the 4 year old at pre school twice a week, take them to doctors appointments, activities etc. Some of which arnt close to home, and also run earns for the parents. I am working monday - friday a little over 50 hours a week and get paid a total of $5oo weekly. I dont get paid for gas and have to supply my own food, drinks, and car. My point is with all I do I feel Im getting under paid. What do you think?
