The Moneyist: I earn $13 per hour babysitting two boys, but their mother wants to hire another girl and pay me half my hourly rate

Dear Moneyist,

I’m a frequent babysitter for two boys. Their mother pays me $13 an hour, which I am very content with.

This summer I’ll be watching them everyday for 8 hours WITH another girl my age. I’m not sure why there needs to be two sitters but I was OK with it.

Don’t miss: These are the pricey summer camps where wealthy kids go to feel ‘normal’

We have to take the boys out to the park, pool, museums, and to eat. I’m also planning on giving them homework to do. She informed me that I would be paid $260 a week for 40 hours (that’s what I’m guessing) which is approximately half of what I am was paid before.
