The Hourly Rate For A Babysitter Is…..
A good baby sitter is hard to find!..So I hear. No kids yet for me, but when I do, believe me, the babysitter will be screened and paid well. How much do you pay your babysitter per hour? I wouldn't even know a good starting point. $10.00?? $12.00?
According to this tidbit in our prep today, the average hourly rate in the U.S. is..... $12.75. New York City parents dole out the most, giving their sitters $15.50 per hour. The lowest rate is found in St. Louis, where parents shell out only $10.00. This article also said that college grads can earn up to $22.00/hour because they usually have more experience.
