How much is your Nanny worth?
As a Nanny, I sometimes ask myself if I'm being paid too little. I always feel like I go above and beyond and it seems like the parents never seem to notice.
So, I fall into a funk. I am almost 95% sure I get paid more than most Nannies in Hoboken, but I'd like more. When I bring up the topic of a raise, it's almost as if I asked my family to go jump off a cliff with me. They make good money...both are lawyers. But, how much am I worth to them? Every Monday they tell me how they don't know how I do my job every week...that the kids are so difficult. But, exactly, it's my job. So, why is it so hard for them to acknowledge my hard work and give me a raise? I've been with this family for a few years now, and yes, I've gotten raises, but they seem sparse these days. On the other hand, I am grateful for them. They are kind.
Parents, how much is your Nanny worth to you? If she asks for a raise, do you give it? How much is too much for a yearly raise?
Nannies, how often do you ask for a raise? What's the average amount that you ask for?
