Above inflation pay rise.

Military Aviation A forum for the professionals who fly military hardware. Also for the backroom boys and girls who support the flying and maintain the equipment, and without whom nothing would ever leave the ground. All armies, navies and air forces of the world equally welcome here.

Above inflation pay rise.

So does this mean the same for the military then?! Won't hold my breath.

There were times when I was self-employed when I'd have been glad of a minimum wage (and paid leave, paid sick leave, employer's pension contributions etc), but my choice, so I didn't complain.

My son has recently retired as a sergeant in the REME - certainly didn't seem to do too badly - was earning more than his sister who has an MA from a top English university! I dont think you do too badly these days - the grass isn't always greener outside
