How much do you pay your babysitter? A new survey by the website Care.com found the average babysitter today gets $13.50 an hour. That’s way up from $10.50 an hour just five years ago . . . and well above minimum wage…AND they say if you have more than one kid expect to pay an extra $5 per child.
The survey also found 26% of people give their sitters an extra tip on top of their hourly rate.
When you add that on to the price of say dinner, concert tickets and parking it’s no surprise why some of us parents don’t go out.
