If “Mom” were an actual paying job, what would she make? Plus Dead or Canadian and the man who promised to not shave until Osama bin Laden was caught was seen running to the store Monday.
Your Dead or Canadian subjects for today: Actor Wayne Robson, actor Corey Haim and Joshua Jackson. (Scroll down for the correct answer.)
If you leave the house to go to work, you collect an actual paycheck. But what about stay at home moms? What would they earn? Well, Forbes put together a study that answers that very same question. Here’s the breakdown:
For the ten separate jobs Mom does: Day care provider, CEO, psychologist, cook, housekeeper, laundry machine operator, computer operator, facilities manager, janitor and chauffeur she should earn a base salary of $39, 968, plus $78,464 in overtime assuming Mom works 97 hours a week every week. All told that adds up to $115, 432!! If you’re a mom who works outside of the home, plus you’re raising kids, you should get a bonus of $63, 472 on top of what you make at your day job.
On September 11, 2001, then President George W. Bush made a vow to catch Osama bin Laden and teacher Gary Weddle made a vow to not shave until Osama bin Laden was caught. Nearly ten years later, as President Barack Obama was addressing the nation with the news that Osama bin Laden was dead, Gary Weddle was shaving the stubble from his face. He says people would tell him over and over again that bin Laden was probably dead and we didn’t know it and his body would never be recovered or that he was alive and we would never get him, but his spirit of patriotism and faith kept him away from the Barbasol and Gillette for 3,454 days. You can watch his interview with ABC News here.
