Mother's Day Special

Holidays often mean more business to restaurants. On this Mother’s Day weekend, however, I would like to contribute a discussion to mothers --- Do you know how happy your mom is? Have you wondered how much your mother’s work is worth?

According to this ABC News video, Norway, Australia, and Iceland are the top three countries with the happiest moms. Mothers in the U.S. only rank the 31st among those mothers who are living in the 43 developed countries. If we break down a mother’s work into 14 different jobs/tasks and calculate how much we need to pay for a mother’s work based on the national average wages suggested by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, we can come up with a salary of $61,436 for a mother.

I wish every mother a happy Mother’s Day; I am sure both my mother and father are happy. Even though I am not able to spend the Mother’s Day with my parents, I talked to them on the phone.

What is the cutest marketing campaign you’ve ever seen? Can business use some of the marketing ideas of Mother’s Day in the Father’s Day?

  1. Why is it that many of us go out to a restaurant on a holiday instead of making a meal and eating at home with family? Doesn't it mean more to be eating a home cooked meal on a holiday? It seems weird to me that Norway, Iceland, and Australia have the happiest moms, it is weird because it is the most random combination of places. What makes them so different from everywhere else, that theie moms would be so happy. What makes the United States ranked 31 of 43 for happiest moms? What do we do that makes our moms not happy? I love my mom. I love many moms, my aunts, my grandmas, my friends moms who treat me like their own child, but I would definitely not even think about paying any mom $61,436. Although they may deserve a lot, I do not think that they deserve this. I hope that I make my mom happy. Happy Mother's Day to all moms.
