Military pay raise all but locked in at 1.3 percent
from Military Times
You can start making plans for how you'll spend that 1.3 percent military pay hike in January — that number is unlikely to go any higher, and even less likely to drop. That's a disappointment to advocates who were pushing for a larger paycheck boost to keep military salaries in line with increases in private-sector wages. Retired Vice. Adm. Norb Ryan, president of the Military Officers Association of America, called the 1.3 percent raise incredibly disappointing. "The services are already struggling with reduced morale and the Army may not meet its recruiting goals this year. The administration and Congress are sending the wrong signal to our troops," said Ryan.
