It's very hard to get a babysitter for under $10.00 an hour. I take care of my mom and I also have to pay to have someone come in and sit with her while I go run errands and work. I can remember an ex-brother law of mine telling me that 100.00 wasn't enough for his 21-year-old son to watch his Grandmother overnight.

This is a sad but true story not even sometimes family members will help out. People barely make enough as it is and if you have kids and you need to work you have to pay more money for someone to care for your kids unless you have family that will help.  When I asked the question what do you pay a babysitter these days here is what you said.
