Getting underpaid by your employer: How to go about a money conversation.
I’m a Nanny for a wonderful family. I usually never keep track of my hours because I have a lot on my plate and my Nanny family is usually keeping track. I recently started tracking my hours as to better budget myself before my paycheck arrives. Today I received my paycheck to find several hours worth of pay missing, I went back to my written hours and recounted them and the math was correct, so I reflected a little on my time with them, and took out minutes that I feel may have been me over stepping, where Mom and I were home at the same time but she had yet to dismiss me for the day. I took out those hours and still found a few hours of work missing from my pay. How do you go about having that conversation respectfully, or do you even go about it at all? I wish there was a better way to track hours so it didn’t fall so much on their shoulders. -From A Trying To Be Respectful Nanny.
