Raise

User in Bronx, NY

I'm being paid $13/hr for a toddler and a newborn in the Bronx. I honestly dont believe it's fair. Am I being unreasonable to want a better salary? How much should I be making? How do I ask for a raise?

I think you should be paid at least $20.00 an hour for the work and attention needed to care for 2 children as young as they are. Molly Barrett
