I've never hired a sitter and when I babysat, I got $1 per hour. My husband recently read me an article indicating babysitters were demanding higher rates, depending on where you lived, the amount of children etc.

If nothing was discussed beforehand, perhaps you can get together with your sitter and come to an agreement. She may know of someone who is getting that $5/hour and wants the same, who knows.
