Annual nanny raise
Our incredible nanny has been with us for nearly a year, which means a raise is appropriate. We pay her $20/hr, time and a half overtime (9hrs/wk), federal holidays, 5 days sick leave, two weeks vacation, end of the year bonus + we pay her when we're out of town. Our daughter is now 18 months.
How have others determined raises? I want to be fair to her, reward her for her wonderful work, but I need to make sure we can afford her now and in the future. We hope she'll stay with us for another 2+ years.
