In preparation for Mother's Day next month, Salary.com did their annual calculation of how much the average mom should be paid.

The average stay-at-home mom puts in a 94.7-hour work week, two hours LESS than they worked last year.  Based on the national market value for the work she does, someone owes her a $112,962 annual salary.  That's 2% lower than last year.

Working moms got a raise this year.  They spend 57.9 hours working as a mom after getting home from their day job.  That would work out to a $66,979 salary and is 5% higher than last year for two hours of more work.
