on what candidates are asking for and the salaries
families are currently offering in Orange County.

to pay and the candidate is willing to accept.
Like every other industry, salaries are based on
"supply and demand". The more candidates
looking for work the less a family has to offer to
find a suitable match. However, while
currently there are many people looking for work,
good candidates are harder to find which enables
them to command higher salaries.
In addition to the basic salaries above the following items are generally considered standard for full time employees:
- Paid vacation is usually 1-2 weeks at the end of the first year.
- Major Holidays: usually the 6 major holidays are given off with pay.

who use their own vehicles for running errands or
driving with the children
