I figured I would see what people think, rather than what gets put on TV.

No enlisted personnel make what they should. There are a bunch of officers I knew that should have been paid in dirt.

Military Pay Chart

So people get an idea; here is the pay scale. This does not include Housing Allowance, food or other incentive or special pays.

Well, I gross $8.33/hour in a 30-day month. If I get deployed it's more like $8.93/hour but thankfully tax-free.

No where near enough!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Those people have sworn their life to this country and all we can pay them is poverty level pay!!!

Buck2 I agree with fire fighters and policemen not making enough but I do think that teachers make a fair amount of money. When someone can work 9 months a year and get 70K, I think their pay is in line.

Dont confuse college professors and teachers. My dad was a teacher for almost 20 years and when he left was only making 38K. I now, at 24 years old, make 34K. No, teachers are not paid enough. Professors at colleges are a different story.
