Every Mother’s Day, someone calculates what mom would get if she were actually paid for all of the work around the house.  Well, now we know how much dad would get for all of his help.

An article in the L.A. Times pegs mom’s household salary between $60,000 to $119,000 a year.

Ready for dad’s figure?  The average dad does about $20,248 worth of work around the house each year.  That’s about a THIRD of what the average mom does in the LOWEST estimate.

Corrected for inflation, dads are doing about $1,000 LESS work than they did 20 years ago.

Now, where’s that remote?
