To accurrately compare the two, you would have to calculate what would happen if you were on unemployment and left the kids in daycare.What?If I'm unemployed, I don't have to put gas in my car, have my clothing dry cleaned, pack a lunch, all sorts of things. If it costs money to go to work, and it does, why should you pretend it doesn't? People who have the option of working at home make similar calculations. If costs of commuting and having appropriate office wardrobe is $250/month, and if you work at home you do not incur those expenses, then you can take a $200/month net paycut and come out ahead a little bit. Imp's question is more complicated than just dollars and cents, but I don't get your objection at all.
