Would You Choose a Raise or a Year’s Vacation?

Working parents, if you had a choice between a 20 percent raise and a year’s vacation, which would you choose?

moms choose raise over vacationPin for later!

A new survey by Working Mother magazine found that the majority of working moms — 61 percent — would choose the salary increase over a year off from work.

This is a tough call, I think. Assuming that “year’s vacation” is fully paid, that’s a pretty good deal. But in difficult economy when every penny counts, I guess it shouldn’t be surprising that when push comes to shove, most people choose cold hard cash!

So what would you choose? Time or money?  Although the time off is sounded pretty sweet to me now, I guess I would go for the cashola myself.  Tell me below!  xo Melissa
