look at sittercity for current rates. What age you are willing to hire also plays a part in wages. Since it is just pocket money for me i charge 5/hr.
We live in KS and pay $8 hrly
I reside in florida. Typically here its usually about $10 per hour, unless you have freinds that maybe have very responsible young adults maybe 16/17 maybe you can pay them $8. Whatever you decide just make sure they have babysitted before, familiar with handling children and it would help if they had cpr and first aid knowledge. Personally I tend to rely on my family first before I seek elsewhere. However the daycare that aariq attends also has overnights. So I've been pretty lucky.
I pay about $7-8 an hour, but I know people who will do it for less and people who will only do it for more.
