moms are underpaid

who doesn't agree with that sentiment? even if they aren't sure there is anything that can or should be done about it, i think we all know "moms" (i.e. stay at home parents) work HARD.

a new study says they'd be making over $130,000 a year. nice.

"It's good to acknowledge the job that's being done, and that it's not that these women are settling for 'just a mom,"' said Bill Coleman, senior vice president of compensation at "They are actually doing an awful lot."

only saying, yeah, you deserve to be paid, isn't really the acknowledgement most "moms" would probably prefer.

the question is, who's going to pony up the cash? or a better question, why aren't mothers on welfare "earning" what the government is "giving them"?

(and where did that pony expression come from?)

According to, the expression first appeared around 1820 but the allusion is unclear. A mystery for the ages, no doubt.
