I babysit a little girl about 3 days a week. I get paid $25/day. Her mom is a single mom. She got hurt at work 3 weeks ago and they put her on light duty. I normally would watch this girl so her mom could sleep since she worked 3rds, but the light duty ended up being 1st shift. She asked me if I could watch her the 1st week and she would add that pay onto the next week since she was not going ot have a paycheck until the following week. So now I was supposed to be paid on Friday for the 2 weeks. She said her job has not gotten her pay correct because its considered disability pay and not a regular paycheck. I told her I cannot watch her until I get the back pay, since its not fair to both of us. She would be owing me way too much money to pay with just one check if I continue to watch her and the money she pays me helps offset our grocery bill and right now we have like no food in the house. I feel bad but I cannot continue to babysit for free. Here is her FB status:(
What is a single mom suppose to do I have to work I can't take my kid to the sitter because I don't know when my jobs going to get my pay figured out and I have a three yr old that can't stay home alone this sucks I just don't know what to do anymore I really wish my job would fix my pay so I don't have to stress about this.
