What Do a Mom and Second-Year Analyst and Morgan Stanley Have In Common?

They both perform about $140,000 dollars worth of work a year, well, according to and HR at Morgan Stanley at least. Bet you thought a mother's love was priceless.

By conducting a survey, researchers at concluded:

The typical mother puts in a 92-hour work week...and works at least 10 jobs. In order of hours spent on them per week, these are: housekeeper, day-care center teacher, cook, computer operator, laundry machine operator, janitor, facilities manager, van driver, chief executive officer and psychologist. By figuring out the median salaries for each position, and calculating the average number of hours worked at each, the firm came up with $138,095 -- three percent higher than last year's results.

Wow, laundry machine operators moonlighting as CEOs. Now that's what I call hard, dedicated working women. Man, my mom did so much work. I better get her some nice flowers for Mother's Day, a card, maybe some perfume...

Methinks I smell a marketing conspiracy between, FTD and Hallmark.
