Between the quarantine messing with our jobs, a stock market crash, and spending all our money on food delivery, these are tough times financially for a lot of people. But though cutting corners is recommended, some people think this mom took it too far in her quest to cut conserve cash—by trying to pay a babysitter well under minimum wage.
In the post, the mom writes that she's seeking a "trustworthy" babysitter for her 3 kids: a month old baby, a 1-year-old, and a 3-year-old. She explains that she would be willing to pay "$160 a week" for watching her kids 7 am to 6 pm during the week. This equates to under $3 an hour, which is a reasonable amount to pay your babysitter if she's 13 years old and it's 1994.
