Should I get a new job?

Right now i work for an on call nanny agency. I don’t see many hours most of the time. I’m lucky if I get 40 hours a week. My cases (jobs) depend on which areas I choose to work. The more areas I choose, the more cases i will get. Right now, I choose the closest areas to me to work in. I don’t want to have to drive super far with traffic any day of the week, so I usually stay close to my house unless my manager asks me to take a case that’s outside of my regular city limits. I work with differnt families almost every day. I love working with kids.

Am I underpaid?

I'm an on call nanny and I work with different families each day or a week depending on what they need. My manager said $15 to start, but I said $17 ( just because i was told on the phone they pay $15-$17 an hour) i searched the company on glassdoor and people have said the common salary is $18/hr, but that could be from in areas other than washington. She she said she can only do $16 to start. My question is what does START mean? Is she saying my pay will go higher or is that just what they always say to have you accept?
