Moms – World’s Toughest Job

I hired thousands of people during my career in Human Resources in New York City over 20+ years.

Some positions were considered “plum” jobs with a high salary, good benefits, and a clear career track. Others were temporary, dead-end, hourly positions that barely paid enough to make the commute worthwhile.

There’s one position I never tried to recruit: mothers. The job description would fill a book. With long hours and no pay, applicants would be few, despite the fact that no experience is necessary. But rather than try to describe the position, I invite you to check out the video below for a fun perspective.

Then, if you’re able, call your mother, wish her a happy Mother’s Day, and tell her “thank you” for working the world’s toughest job!

And if you are a mom, please know your efforts are noticed and appreciated!


 
Study Proves Moms Work Harder

Moms

For all you moms who are convinced you work harder and longer than most other people, it’s finally been confirmed.

You actually do.

A survey sponsored by Welch’s noted that mothers work an average of 14 hours a day for a 98-hour work week. The survey included 2,000 moms with children in elementary school.

Remember, that’s without monetary compensation. Of course, moms know they get paid with something better than money: love, appreciation, hugs, kisses, and most important of all, the knowledge that they’re shaping the next generation.

Still, the equivalent of 2.5 full-time jobs? Yikes!

This just proves what most moms have known all along: they are priceless!

However, just for the fun of it, use this link to calculate your (or your mother’s) salary. Then thank her and wish her a happy Mother’s Day!
