I’ve been working with this family for almost 2 years now, Monday to Friday 7am to 5pm. When I first started with them they only had a 2 month old boy and mom was going back to work. They started paying me 250 a week/ 50 a day. They lived in a very small town (I live there too) and nany rates are super low. My duties were of course watching the kid, light housekeeping (sweeping, mopping, dishwasher, countertops). 4 months later they moved to the city which is 30 minutes from where I live and they used to live. House is 3 times bigger than the other.
This is my first nanny position so I'm not sure how to navigate such an awkward topic. I work from 6am-6pm Monday through Saturday with one little boy. I'm in charge of cleaning, cooking, basic education and tutoring, transportation, and I care for the family's two dogs. For this she gives me $300 a week. Is this acceptable? Should I even ask for more? She says she wants to pay me more but is financially unable to. She promises raises in the future but I'm not sure whether I should demand a pay raise or try to find another job.
