Looking for a Lucrative Career? Try Babysitting
Babysitting is pretty good work if you can get it.
Just how much can you make?
In New York City, the job is even more lucrative, with the average Big Apple sitter pulling in a healthy $15.50 an hour.
After New York, sitters make the most in Los Angeles ($14) and San Francisco ($13.50.) St. Louis had the lowest priced babysitters of the nine cities UrbanSitter surveyed, but even they pulled in $9.50 an hour, which is still better than the federal minimum wage of $7.25.
According to UrbanSitter, most of these babysitting jobs take place between the hours of 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. and the average parents hire 2.4 different sitters every three months.
