How much do people generally charge or get paid for babysitting these days?

I was talking to a woman at a gas station the other day and she said she needed a babysitter for her son and we started talking about it. She needs someone to pick him up from school and then watch him until about midnight like 5 days a week and she's offering $10 a day.  I know she can't afford much more, but she has an opportunity for a MUCH better job (better pay, better hours, she can take her son with her, etc.) and she's considering staying at the gas station because she's been there for about a year. I really hope she takes that job because I don't know anyone who would babysit for $10 a day. What is the going rate for babysitting these days?
