What is a Homemaker Really Worth?

In Today’s society homemakers are unfortunately often looked at as lazy women who sit around the house doing nothing. With ignorant statements like the one which said Ann Romney “never worked a day in her life,” it is clear that women are only considered hard-working if they bring home a paycheck and leave their kids at daycare. Not that I am an advocate for the Romney’s or that I’m against women working; What I have a problem with is people thinking that raising children, keeping a home, and being a wife are all just useless hobbies with no value. Well here’s an interesting little breakdown of exactly how much it would cost to do all the things that Homemakers really do! Interesting thought. Is it close? What do you think?
