When we found our nanny (amazingly on care.com), she was hoping to make $15-20/hour. She is in her late 50's, has a bachelor's degree, and is a professional nanny. She is amazing. We absolutely love her. She works two 11 hour days for us. We negotiated with her and pay her $14/hour b/c she preferred that we use a payroll service (Nannychex) so her pay is directly deposited. We also became official "employers" with our state, so we pay taxes on her income and pay a fee to use NannyChex. We also pay for worker's comp. So, we told her that it averaged another $2/hour with those expenses and she agreed to take $14/hr start. She gets 3 weeks of unpaid vacation, but if we go on vacation, she still gets paid for her 22 hrs/week.
So, 10/1 is her 1st anniversary with us. I have been planning on giving her a 5% raise. Most of my jobs have given a 1-5% raise per year. 5%= 70 cent raise. I don't know if we can give her a 5% increase every year though.
Anyone else have any experience with this? What kind of raises do Nannies expect???
