What do you pay your babysitter per hour were you live??


We pay $10/hr were we live. I know that sounds crazy but that's the going rate.  You can't get them back if you pay less the first time. We live in a remote community so are hands are tied.

  • Well that's it I'm going into babysitting, lol, daycares don't even charge that much per hour why pay a teenager that much.
    I always just paid whatever the minimum wage was
