Spreading Disconent in the Institution of Marriage once again releases it's annual propaganda designed to instill discontent and discord amongst married couples by imputing a ridiculous valuation of the tasks a housewife performs in running a household.

Study: Stay-at-Home Mom Worth Nearly $117,000 a Year

If a stay-at-home mom could be compensated in dollars rather than personal satisfaction and unconditional love, she'd rake in a nifty sum of nearly $117,000 a year.

That's according to a pre-Mother's Day study released Thursday by, a Waltham, Mass.-based firm that studies workplace compensation.

This is the kind of garbage promoted by the mainstream media designed to influence married women to look at their familial arrangements and think they are getting the proverbial short end of the stick. Rather than look at the benefits she derives from working to raise her own children and create a home that supports a husband as a breadwinner (A HAPPY HOME! What is more important than that?!?!), she's supposed to look at her housework and child raising and think she's being oppressed, ripped-off and taken advantage of by her evil, Patriarchal husband.

See, the Matriarchy doesn't want intact, nuclear families. Much harder to control a populace made up of intact families with Men fulfilling the roles of bread winner and leader of their families.

Such agitprop was designed to push the buttons in married housewives to promote divorce, AND discourage single women from getting married in the first place - after all, why should young women put themselves in the position of "working for free" when they can just forgo marriage and child rearing, and "get paid what they are worth?"

Either way, the dual agendas of the depopulation agenda and the "make as many people dependent on Nanny State Government" agenda are both served by the perpetual proliferation of this kind of garbage.

Of course, as all propaganda, some real truths are cleverly interspersed so as to camouflage the true motivations. Consider the telling quote I put in bold from the excerpt I quoted: "...rather than personal satisfaction and unconditional love..."

As if mere money can replace those two things in any family!

Funny, but that IS EXACTLY the lie todays society is promulgating! Children don't need a loving Father to provide for, support, love and discipline them...only his indentured servitude and minimal (if even that) visitations are necessary.

The subversion of what was once a great country continues...

In my experience, if we treated wives like employees, most of them would be summarily fired, but what do I know?

Good point about firing these wives.

Here is Marc Rudov's commentary about giving mom salaries:

I hold the opposite view... I consider housewives a drag and unnecessary ballast.

First off, I wouldn't marry a woman who hasn't earned a degree or two and isn't similar to me in intelligence and achievement. There's really no excuse, given the woman-friendly everything around us.

Secondly, I wouldn't have kids. That right there removes 95% of the reason for having the woman having the privilege of staying home in the first place.

Even if you do have a kid or two, when they grow up enough to go to kindergarten, there is plenty of time for a woman to work and earn her share. Equality, remember?

I think its great that housewives are made fun of and looked down upon by feminists. Most of them really do not need to be staying home (or visiting the mall and Starbucks to spend their husband's money) and most of them don't do a lot at home anyway.

A prime example of how to lie with statistics! Come on, what SAHM work constitutes the 6.4 hours of CEO work per week that Salary figures on? How about the 6.9 hours of psychologist work per week? (Telling the rugrats to shut up and go to their room doesn't count.) I'm surprised they didn't try to put a dollar sign on marital relations by calling it "courtesan services."
