fair babysitting rate?

I am currently looking for someone to come into my home once a week and watch my daughter for a total of 8 hours while I am at work. Question to any other parents out there who have done this before or know someone who has, what is the going rate or what do you think a fair hourly rate would be? Most of the ladies I have talked to are stay-at-home-mom's who will be coming into my home to watch both my child and her own. Nothing outside the scope of childcare will be required of them other than picking up after themselves. All food and drinks will be provided. I'm at a loss as to where to begin my wage negotiations.
Thanks to anyone who replies. ;)
