  • I recently heard that you start at minimum wage as far as per child I really dont know because they are of the same family. I have also heard people starting at $10/hr. I am in Cali so the min. wage is $8.00/hr

  • Is this a one time affair or is it a consistent job? If it is 1 time thing I would think $10/per hour. I pay $8.50 per hour for 2 kids. If it is long term I would lower the rate to $8 per hour. I hope this helps! :)
