What's wrong here? Military, Hamburgers and Minimum Wage (general)

Military, Hamburgers and Minimum Wage

Low military pay was not mentioned in the last State Of The Union speech.
However, increasing the minimum wage for those fast food employees striking for $15 an hour was mentioned.

Let's do some math:

At $15 an hour Johnny Fry-Boy & LaTisha McBurger Flipper would make $31,200 annually.

An E1 (Private) in the military makes $18,378 or $8.85/hour

An E5 (Sergeant) with 8 years of service only makes $35,067 annually
or 16.86/hour.

So you're telling me, Johnny Fry-Boy & LaTisha McBurger Flipper, that you deserve as much as those kids getting shot at, deploying for months in hostile
environments, and putting their collective asses on the line every day
protecting your unskilled butt!?

Here's the deal, you are working in a job designed for a kid
in high school who is learning how to work and earning enough for gas,
and hanging out with their equally goofy high school pals. If you have
chosen this as your life long profession, you have failed.

If you don't want minimum wage, don't have minimum skills.

If you can read this, thank a teacher.


If it's in English, thank a Veteran.
