Am I getting paid too little??

Am I getting paid too little??           reply

I mind 2 girls (siblings) the oldest is in school and the youngest is starting primary school in sept (she goes to play school at the moment). They are both dropped into me in the morning even though I only get paid for after school care. I was wondering what I should be paid as I have to bring them to school in the morning and collect them at different times in the afternoon (which means 3 trips a day). The school would have my phone details incase the eldest got sick so I make sure I am around while they are at school just incase I am needed. Should I be getting paid for a full day ?. I get 20euro for after school 2pm-5pm.
I do not get paid any extra pay for midterms , holidays when I would have them both from 9am - 5pm or if the elest is sick and not in school but is with me for the whole day.

Thank you

yes you are getting paid too little especially when you have them for full days on those days you should be getting at least 45 to 50e per day
