Does any one remember the controversy that happened last year during census?
The Supreme Court, in a stinging ruling, questioned the government’s Census parameters which place housewives and women engaged in domestic work in the same economic bracket as “prostitutes, beggars and prisoners”.
I started wondering what would be the value placed on a housewife’s work … which is, as of now, unpaid labor
|Chore||Existing Rate per month|
|Tutor (all subjects @6,000 per child||12,000|
|Safe sex provider||50,000 (at least)|
|Baby birther (don’t knock it, most families look for a fertile bride)||50,000 (at least)|
|Mother in law tantrums receiver||1,00,000|
I think this is a modest estimate.
Feel free to add any chore I’ve left out ….
Now I would like any male readers I have to this blog to introspect and wonder if they can afford to get married or not.
If I have not lost my male readers, I ask them to value their spouses
If I’ve pissed them off – they are welcome to troll the comment section. I reserve the rights to delete any comment which I dont like
To my older son’s accusation that this is all male bashing let me clarify, I want a housewife too, I really I really I really want one. I am working hard and hope I can afford one soon. This post is not male bashing, it is about valuing someone who makes the house a home and a group of people a family. I was brought up in a home made by a housewife. Ask Kid#2 how much he misses Naani and you’ll know the stellar role a home maker has, it is irreplaceable.
