Live-In Nannies help!!

Live-in nannies can I pick your brains a bit?? I'm currently in a position where I nanny for my nephew (have been for about 14 months) and also live with them (sister and brother-in-law). I work 40+ hours a week, clean, help with the two dogs, grocery shop, etc. I live in San Diego and make $1,100 per month. I am well aware I make WAY under minimum wage but I also live here for free.

What do you guys get paid per hour or week? Is it minimum wage or more?


I started working for the family I work with almost a year ago. At the time they had one child and 7 months ago she gave birth to her second. I get paid salary per week but my pay hasn't changed since the second baby had been born. She does give me extra money here and there but no definite increase. What is a fair increase to ask for for taking on a second child and how do I go about this?
