Looking at the military pay scale looks like just about any other private sector hierarchical organization. Grunts at the bottom make crap. Officers (management) start at ok salaries and go up to fairly comfortable middle class or even upper middle class levels. Enlisted men stuck with a glass ceiling stuck at an ok, but not great level of pay even at the top levels. Was similar to my first job. Skilled technicians with no education but lots of experience topped out in the $50k range. Engineers with a degree and no experience started at a similar level but went up into the $100k+ range by mid/late career.

There are other similarities to private employment in the military. An Air Force Colonel, a Major, a Captain, and a Chief Master Sergeant were discussing sex. The Colonel expressed the opinion that sex with his wife was 90% pleasure, and 10% work. The Major put the percentage at 50/50 work/pleasure, and the Captain chimed in with a 40% pleasure, 60% work guesstimate. The Chief nailed it- - - -"It's gotta be 100% pleasure- - - -if there was any work involved you guys would have me doing it for you!"
