Nigerian influencer give reasons why husbands should pay their stay-at-home wives salary
A Nigerian writer Ozzy Etomi, has taken to her Twitter to campaign for stay at home mothers, as she opined that they need to be paid for by their husbands. She narrated how she catered for her 10 months old baby for a whole day because her nanny was away and at the same time had to work from home.
She added that it wasn’t a pleasant experience as she said, she will always prefer to work than to stay at home to carter for kids, adding that stay at home mothers doesn’t get enough appreciation and deserved to be paid for their services. She went further to give reasons why they should be paid by their husbands.
”Husband is away, Nanny had an emergency, had to work from home today while handling an extremely precocious 10 month old. I’d pick going to work over staying in with a baby/toddler all day. Stay at home mom’s dont get enough appreciation, admiration or respect. PAY YOUR WIVES.
I truly believe stay at home mothers should earn a salary, paid by their husbands. I dont want to start another twitter war, so instead I will write an article about this because I can ignore medium comments I also believe they should insist on pension payments. Why? Because more often than not, the exchange that is meant to be occurring is that husbands are “working for the family”, while the woman is manning the domestic/ childcare homefront.
The wealth gap never closes because as husbands get richer, wives do not get richer. Stay at home wives do not get their monthly share of their husbands salary as theirs to keep/ save/ invest.
A lot of women with wealthy husbands get tickets bought, houses to stay in, clothes & expensive gifts, and “spending money”. But most times do not have 2 cents to rub together without their husbands despite working together to build up the family for years. It is HIS money. Thennnnn after years of being married, that nigga dies and lives everything to the kids.
And then the cycle starts over with your children handing you pocket money. I’ve already said too much. Men, pay your wives sha. Build up her wealth too. Let her have a retirement plan. It’s not a curse to stay home and take care of kids, women shouldn’t have to suffer for it. When she does that, she is still using many considerable skills to keep the home organized, the house finances straight, making sure the kids are good, keeping staff in line, etc. She is doing a LOT OF WORK which is essentially unpaid labor. You on the other hand are doing a lot of work which you are freed up to do because you dont have to worry about your home or your kids.
When you bring home your share aka the finances. It is for you & your wife & kids. Not yours to mete out as you see fit.Ozzy Etomi Your wife, being someone who is at home, is not EARNING AN INCOME. Therefore if youre income isnt shared fairly with her, she is essentially living a life of poverty only offset by your ‘generosity’ and those are the men who even bother giving their wives an ‘allowance’.
