An ad campaign in the UK is making the case that stay-at-home mothers should be paid around $260,000 per year. The campaign, launched in conjunction with the UK version of Mothers Day, is similar to one run in the US last year, according to AdWeek.

The campaign is styled much like a job ad, claiming candidates must be available to work 119 hours a week, learn on the job, have impeccable time management skills, be on call 24/7, and have limitless patience. There is a calculator here to see how much a specific person’s salary might add put to.
