MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A new survey reveals how much families across the country pay for babysitters.
San Francisco is the most expensive at $17.34 per hour, and Phoenix is the least expensive at $11.83 for an hour of babysitting.
Here in Minneapolis, we’re below the average rate, at $14.66 per hour.
The average hourly rate for one child is $16.43.
The survey also found that nearly 40 percent of parents hire a babysitter at least once a week.
Also, the slight majority of parents tip their babysitters on top of the rate.
