What's the going rate for a nanny or babysitter in the Iowa City area? We'll be moving there in August and we're planning to hire a 35 hour/week nanny for our 2 kids (infant and 3 year old). In Charleston, SC where we are now, we pay $10/hour. Is it about the same in Iowa or is it more or less?

I don't have to pay for daycare while I work, but the friends I have had that hired a nanny are paying about 14. $10 dollars an hour though would still be considered by a few people to be a good wage, and you may be able to pay similar to what you were previously.

You could probably get away with paying minimum wage. The employment prospects are complete crap, and anyone who doesn't have a parent that wedged themselves into the system won't find meaningful work.
