No way. I worked out recently that I make that close to a day after paying Childcare costs and feel that it is barely worth it (I have 2 children). However I enjoy going to work and having a bit of spare money, which is why I do it.

But...I love my job and I would try and work maybe 2 days to keep my sanity.

If my family desperately needed that money, yes I would. But I would be trying to find a better option at the same time.

After 4 days work for $160 a week so that's $40/day??
No way. I'd find other work or volunteer to keep my sanity. Even if I loved my work and the kids loved daycare - no way.

I would maybe 2 days per week just to keep up my skills and registration. I have not worked the past 3 months and I am ready for some adult stimulation.

Nope i wouldn't. It all depends on your situation though, depends how badly you need to keep the job or of the money makes a difference to you. $50 a week? That's $12.50 a day, tough working 4 days for that amount. I'd probably drop back to 2 or 3 days a week if it was possible.
