I'm moving to a new city and setting up work in advance. I was originally going to split my time between two families, but one of them fell through. I was already planning to be with the other family 2 days a week and now that the other position fell through they're asking about keeping me on-call for two more days a week. The grandparents usually watch the kids those days, but apparently they travel sometimes and the parents like the idea of knowing that I would be consistently available to pick up days if needed.
Hi I'm new to this group and I joined because I definitely need some advice from other nannies:
I work for two families in Boston, it's a nanny-share. I've been working for them for over a year, after 13 months they just gave me a raise. I was so surprised how little the raise is, only $0.40 an hour from each family. I work too hard with the two babies, I used to get paid before the raise $19 an hour for two babies. Now is $19.80
I think I've been really cheap with them. I'm so upset about that. :(
Do you think I should ask for more? How much from each family?
Or time to move on?
