Depends on where you live and the cost of living.  Flipping burgers at McDonald's in NYC doesn't pay the same as it does in a small town in Iowa for example.  Check out these sites and find out how much people are charging in your area...

I am a daycare teacher and do babysitting on the side...

I typically make between 8 and 10 an hour (living in WI).
